Today we are continuing our Poetry unit by learning about Acrostic poems!

Here are some helpful videos about Acrostic Poems:

Your Poetry Writing Task:

  • In your daily journal or on a piece of paper you can create an Acrostic planning page that looks something like this: 

What word am I going to write about:

_______Spring________________

S________________

P________________

R________________ 

I________________

N________________

G________________

Now try to add in a word for each line that starts with that letter and describes the topic of your acrostic poem: 

  • When your planning sheet is done you can write a good copy in your Poem Booklet. There is a second blank page in your booklet, so you can plan another poem and write another good copy. 
  • Many acrostic poems are written using somebody’s name, so you can try one using your name or a friend’s name!

Science: Amphibians

Amphibians

Amphibians are animals that begin life in the water and move on to land as adults. Amphibians lay eggs in the water. The eggs stay there until they hatch. Tadpoles hatch from the eggs of frogs and toads. Young amphibians will live in the water just like tadpoles. Most adult amphibians will live on land, but they will still live near the water. Many amphibians have moist skin, but toads do not. Their skin is rough and bumpy.

The metamorphosis, or change, of an amphibian is very different from animals in other groups. For example, frog babies look very different than their parents. Young frogs hatch from eggs and begin life in the water as tadpoles. They breathe with gills, which help take oxygen from the water. When they grow, young frogs change. When they begin to grow older, they develop lungs and their gills disappear. They also develop legs and lose their tail.
