The kids are doing a super job with their acrostic poems. I have been really impressed with their willingness to revise their word choices. I think having the computers with the thesaurus program helps with this process. It is easy to use and they love it whenever they can get their hands on a computer.
I am beginning to introduce concrete poetry and onomatopoeia and we are moving into that new assignment. Except for the Wednesday class, students should have completed their acrostic poem by now.
