Rainbow Acrostic Poem Example for Spring blue bullet point First, this is a S.P.R.I.N.G. acrostic poem. I have added a challenge to the concept of a typical acrostic poem though, because the key letters appear in the middle of the poem, instead of at the beginning of the poem.

blue bullet point Second, this a rainbow shape poem and students complete their final drafts by writing in an arch shape of a rainbow.

blue bullet point Students cut out their rainbow templates along the thick lines and then they have unique rainbow shaped poetry writing templates.

blue bullet point The finished drafts of these S.P.R.I.N.G. acrostic rainbow poems will make a very colorful poetry bulletin board display in your classroom.

This S.P.R.I.N.G. acrostic poem
set of teaching resources includes:

  • first draft writing worksheet
  • black and white rainbow template
  • color rainbow template
  • matching 5 page bulletin board display banner
  • 6 rainbow bulletin board accent pieces

Rainbow and Sun blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete these spring acrostic poems is included in this set of poetry lesson plans. All that you will need is scissors and coloring pencils.

blue bullet point For creative writing assignments, I believe that it is important for students to go through the steps of the writing process.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin writing their poems on their final draft rainbow poetry templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Then, they edit and revise their poems on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

Below is an example of the first draft worksheet that
is included in this set of poetry lesson plans.

Spring Acrostic Poem First Draft Worksheets

Bright Rainbow blue bullet point After students have edited and revised the first drafts of their S.P.R.I.N.G. poems, you should give them their final draft rainbow templates.

blue bullet point The rainbow templates measure 6 inches in height and 10 inches in width. These templates have thick lines, so it is easy for students to cut out their spring acrostic poem templates themselves.

blue bullet point Students write their acrostic poems on the 6 arched lines on the rainbow templates, and each line of the poem gets shorter in length.

Below is an example of the black and white rainbow poem templates.

blue bullet pointFor final draft poetry assignments, when I give my students fun templates to write on, I have found that they tend to use their best effort, and they are more careful to not make careless spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

Below is an example of student's finished spring acrostic poem.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
