How to write an acrostic poem?

Acrostic poems are a unique form of poetry in which the first letter of each line, when read from top to bottom, spells out another word, message, or name.

They serve as an inventive way to embed hidden or meaningful words within a poem, adding a layer of creativity and expression.

For instance, a simple acrostic poem for the word “FRIEND” might look like this:

Fun times we share, laughter so free,

Reliable, you’ve always been to me,

In moments of need, you’re by my side,

Encouraging, in you, I confide,

Nothing can break our bond, it’s true,

Dearest friend, forever I cherish you.

There are 3 different acrostic poem templates to download and they make a fun activity for all grade levels.

When it comes to teaching poetry, making it engaging for young learners can be a challenge. That’s where our Christmas writing pages come in handy.

Christmas acrostic poem examples

Children’s laughter fills the air,

Hugs and warmth, we all share,

Reindeer prance in the snowy night,

In the dark, the stars shine bright,

Stockings hung with care, so tight,

The joy of giving, the season’s light,

Magical moments, pure and fair,

As we celebrate, a love so rare,

Singing carols, hearts take flight

A Christmas poem for preschool

Candy canes,

Happy kids,

Reindeer run,

Ice and snow,

Santa’s gifts,

Toys for me,

Merry songs,

And a big tree,

Sparkling lights!
