Today we are going to look at three different kinds of poetry.

Acrostic, Simile and Limerick

An acrostic poem is where the first letter of each line spells out a word, message or alphabet.

You can write out just one word or you can write a full sentence.

Here are some examples that I wrote.


Now lets look at a different type of poetry!

simile makes a comparison, showing similarities between two different things.

Therefore it uses the words “as” and “like” to make the direct comparison in a poem.

Finally, lets learn about these!

A limerick is a humorous poem with five lines that always have the same rhyme and pattern.

Lines one, two and five always have the same rhyme, while lines three and four rhyme with each other.
