Newbridge Poets Write About Autumn Acrostic Style

With a hint of summer still in the air, third graders at Newbridge Road Elementary School in the North Bellmore School District grabbed their clipboards and ventured outside to write about the new season just two days old on Sept. 23 – autumn.

Students learned about acrostic poems from teachers Ashley Firestone and Caitlin Pugliese, understanding how the first letter of each line spells a word. They then created their own poems using seasonal words such as acorn, fall, leaf and pumpkin, with their natural surroundings serving as inspiration.

Grayden Urtheil’s poem has one line thumbnail-1for each letter in “fall.”
