After School Art Program Helps Foster some Unique Acrostic Poems in Temple City

By Brittany Phan Grade 5

As a response to an assignment given to some Temple City Education Center students, who attend after school programs at Emperor Elementary School have created some unique works of art for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend holiday.
Acrostic poems are simple poems in which each the first letter of each line forms a word or phrase (vertically). An acrostic poem can describe the subject or even tell a brief story about it. This type of poem is one of the simplest for a student to write because it gives the child a concrete format to use. You can write an acrostic poem based on your name, a favorite hobby, or something or someone who is important to you!
The instructors Sue Lim and Irene Krubski taught the children how to do three-dimensional art work and asked the students to create a patriotic tribute for Memorial Day. We’re delighted to feature a few here in this issue.

    This is a beautiful way to help children learn about and remember the sacrifices made by others for the freedoms we have in this country.
