Let's Write
Bat Poems

On the left side of an easel pad, write the word BATS vertically. Explain to children that an acrostic is a kind of poem in which each letter of a word begins a line of poetry. Tell children that together you will create an acrostic using the word BATS. Remind children that the line of poetry can be a sentence, a short phrase, or just a single word. Explain that this kind of poem does not need to rhyme. When you have completed the poem, let children draw a picture to illustrate it.
