Halloween is a great opportunity to add a bit of fun to the classroom (or homeschool in our case!). I have put together some free Halloween acrostic poem templates for you to enjoy.
We always have so much fun playing with acrostic poems, they are perfect for kids of any age too!
These acrostic poem templates all spell out Halloween, but you don’t need to just write a spooky poem!
Let the kids get creative and write about whatever they want. It is amazing how much they are willing to write when they can choose the subject!
For even more educational fun this Halloween, check out our Halloween writing prompts for elementary and middle school aged children. They are also going to love these free Halloween bookmarks to color.

Halloween Acrostic Poem
There are 4 templates to print out, including 2 black and white templates (as we all know that ink is expensive!). The black and white templates can also be colored in when they have finished writing their acrostic poem.
You can either get the kids to write a spooky-themed poem or let them create a poem of their choosing based on the letters HALLOWEEN.
I know how hard it can be to find inspiration so here are some helpful words if you are struggling:
H – Hair Raising, Hat, Haunted, Hell, Horror
A – Afraid, Autumn, Alone, Alarming
L – Lantern, Lightning
L – Labyrinth
O – October, Owl, Orange, Outfit
W – Wail, Wand, Werewolf, Weird, Witch
E – Eerie, Evil, Eyeballs
E – Exorcist, Enchant, Effect
N – Neighborhood, Nasty, Nightmare, Night
Poem Books For Kids
Acrostic poems are a great way to get the kids to enjoy poetry but don’t stop there. These kids’ poetry books will continue their love of poetry.

Make sure you choose the correct paper size and click on the shrink to fit button. All of our printables work better when printed on cardstock (this is the one we use and love.)
