Wow, the "wonders" never cease here at Thinkfinity! As I was browsing for a lesson via ReadWriteThink.org, I found another amazing tool! Enter--The Acrostic Interactive! Woo-hoo!
You may be wondering what is an acrostic poem? Well, wonder no longer. It's a poem that has one word (theorists recommend starting with children's names to introduce this concept) with the letters of that word or name down the left side of a page...and then let the brainstorming begin!
For example, I created an acrostic to honor you, the Thinkfinity Community, by letting you know how thankful I am for your lessons and learning on a regular basis, especially as we approach Thanksgiving in just a few weeks! I'm so thankful for you...and here are all of the words that come to mind as I reflect on joining this Community since July 2013!
rom here, I refined the brainstormed list of words and began to apply them to the "Thankful" acrostic!
And Viola! the "Thankful" acrostic was born which could now be printed, saved, and shared! What an easy to use, fun, interactive tool this turned out to be!
Thanks to Renee Goularte for designing the accompanying lesson on how to use the interactive tool (here). And as we head into the season of Thankfulness--please know I am thankful for you and the wonderful tools the Community provides! What are you thankful for?
