We did acrostic poems yesterday based on the words Candy Cane. I used these because they were a free printable and I was too lazy to make my own with a different word. Anyway, these turned out pretty well.
Here's my youngest son's.
N orth pole.
C hristmas presents
A ll are here!
N ot sleeping!
E eek! We said as we jumped out of bed.
(He didn't really get into it until the last part.)
C hristmas is coming soon
A nd we sing Chrismas Carols like
N oel Noel and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Rein
D eer and then its time for bed.
C hristmas! Shouts my little brother,
A nd everyone jumps out of bed to see what is the matter
N o one was sleeping anymore, not with
pr E sents by the door.
(She kinda cheated on that last line, using the E in the middle of presents!)
My oldest son's.
C hristmas is coming in just 4 days
A nd we are
N ot unhappy.
D awn on Christmas, we can't wait.
Y um, we get some taffy.
C ant' wait any longer.
N o one can make this sentence wronger
E veryone wants Christmas today. Hurray!
(He does know that wronger is not a word!)
Some things we used for language arts through the years included Caught Ya, Grammar with a Giggle and Jump In, A Workbook for Reluctant and Eager Writers. I really think the second one, which my daughter used for 2 years, helped her want to become a writer. She's been working on her first novel for a few years.
