Monster Acrostics will bring imagination, creativity and fun bursting to life as your child creates a monster and then discovers the delights of poetry as they write about their creepy or cute creation!

Easy to learn, acrostics are the perfect introduction to poetry.  

The opportunity to see their work published in a real book will inspire your child and get them excited to write, and there are fantastic prizes up for grabs too! Every entrant will receive a bookmark and sticker, anyone chosen for publication gets a certificate of merit and our favourite 5 poems will win a creative goody bag! 

There are loads more resources available to download including:
👹 Example poems to show what a good one looks like
👻Alphabet word bank to help with those tricky letters!
👽 Word Doc entry form so no printer needed!
