Write colorful acrostic poems! It's easy with Crayola Dry-Erase Markers!
Explain to students how to write an acrostic poem. Each letter in a word starts a new line of poetry. The text always describes the word. For example, the word SUN might have an acrostic poem lines that reads Shining, Ultraviolet, Not seen at night.
Have students break into small groups. Each group selects a word as the acrostic poem theme word. Have students write the word with Crayola Dry-Erase Markers vertically along the left side of a dry-erase board. If they want to make a change--no problem! Simply use a facial tissue to erase and then rewrite.
Students work together to come up with words or short phrases, related to the theme word, that begin with each letter of that word. Have students brainstorm a variety of ideas to decide which ones best fit the poem. Write each word or phrase next to the theme word letter.
Each group takes turns presenting their poetry to the other groups in the class. Each student in the group could read one line in turn or in unison, for example.
