Rhino Daily Challenge – Writing

Acrostic Poetry

An acrostic poem can be fun to create but also quite thought provoking.

To create an acrostic, follow these four easy steps:
  1. Decide what to write about
  2. Write your chosen word vertically down your page
  3. Write a word or a sentence that starts with one of the vertical letters
  4. Repeat for the rest of the vertical letters until your poem is complete

For today’s challenge, I would like you to have a go at writing an acrostic poem for a sport or sports person of your choice. Try and write sentences for each letter rather just choosing one word. Be creative!

Here is an example for one of my favourite sports:

B ounce the ball with your head up
A ccuracy is key to scoring a basket
S hoot if you’re open
K eep your mind on the game
E njoy it while you can
T ake it to the basket
B end knees to shoot with power
A lways use the backboard
L ay up shots should never be missed
L earn to play as a team
Don’t forget to send in your work on dojo. I have lots of merits to give out!!!
