A is for Armand Acrostic Poem: A Literature Unit Activity

Alyssa recently finished the book, The Family Under the Bridge, written by Natalie Savage Carlson. She wrote a Character Acrostic Poem about the main character, Armand, as one of her final Language Arts projects. Acrostic poems are one of our favorite types of poetry and can be easily added into your studies.

An acrostic poem lists the letters for the subject or topic vertically down the paper. Words or phrases are written describing the subject beginning with each letter.

She brainstormed ideas before writing her poem. My daughter wrote the letters A - R - M - A - N - D down the left-side of the paper vertically.  Then, she wrote her descriptions beginning with each letter and added an illustration of the main character. Today I will share a photo of the completed activity. Have fun creating main character acrostic poems!  The illustration can show character development and changes for dynamic characters. In our story, Armand was a homeless hobo living alone under the bridge. He made a huge transformation at the end of the story. :)

I will link this post up at A Net in Time and Hopkins Homeschool's Blogging Through the Alphabet Linky. All the posts this week are related to the Letter A. Come join the fun and link your post.
