Acrostic Poem

Hula-PoemAs we prepare for PIYP (Poem In Your Pocket) day, you may be thinking of a poetry style that best describes you and your interest.  Some classes have been creating beautiful acrostic poems that tell of their personal interest or what they are learning about in their classroom.  Here is an acrostic poem that I wrote for my daughter “Auli’i” who recently participated in the 50th Merrie Monarch Ms. Aloha Hula Competition.

What is an Acrostic Poem?  An acrostic poem uses the letters in a topic word to begin each line.  All lines to the poem should relate, connect to and describe the poem.  My poem about HULA uses the letters in the word hula to begin each line.  Have fun creating a poem to share on PIYP day!
