Learning from students: Acrostic poems

Here's another example from my adult students sharing poetry with young people in my "learning from my students' students" series. 

We're looking at how they interacted with You Just Wait: A Poetry Friday Power Book using each PowerPack to see how young writers responded.

Here, Lauren S. got the students involved in PowerPack 7 of You Just Wait and I think you'll enjoy what she did with it.

Lauren created original digital poem postcards for both of the response poems by Janet Wong in PowerPack 7.

Then, she shared the response poems (acrostic poems) the students wrote in relation to the mentor text poems.

Finally, Lauren also recommended additional books of acrostic poetry that students might enjoy in her final resources slide:
