In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, students in Kathryn Minerva’s class at Edith Slocum Elementary School wrote acrostic poems to win their pot of gold.
An acrostic poem uses the first letter of each line to spell out a word, name or phrase when read vertically. The students were instructed to choose either the word “rainbow” or “pot of gold” to start their poems. Working in groups, the students then wrote words or phrases to complete each line of their poems, which are now hanging in the hallway for everyone to enjoy reading.
