ACROSTIC POEMS

Poems in which special letters spell another word. Most often, the special letters come at the beginning of each line. But  they may be placed elsewhere, too.

Examples:

Devoted, 
On 
Guard. 


Panthers growl,
Orioles sing,
Eagles soar,
Monkeys swing.
See? 





CONCRETE POEMS

A concrete poem is a poem that forms a picture of the topic or follows the contours of a shape that is suggested by the topic. These can be used effectively with reports in science or social studies. For example, my students have used them in catastrophe reports. Their poems were about a tornado, a hurricane, a flood, and an earthquake.
