Week 33: May, Acrosticly Speaking


Ahhhhhhhh May. What a wonderful time of year! May is the month when spring is in full bloom and summer is on its way! When you think of May, what comes to mind? For this week's response, we are going to create an Acrostic poem about the month of May.

Acrostic is a type of poem in which the first letter of each line spells a word.  To start, write the letters M A Y down the side of your paper. Then think of a word (or words) for each letter. Each line should describe the month of May.

Type your May poem in the comment box below. If you need help writing your poem, you can use Read Write Think's Acrostic Poem Maker. You can see a sample below!

Your comment will not be seen by others until I approve it. Please respond before Friday,  May 13th!
