Celebrate grandma and grandpa in the classroom with a Grandparents Day acrostic poem template.

Acrostic Poems Make Great Grandparents Day Gifts

Grandparents Day is right around the corner! We’ve been working around the clock to create materials for you and your students to use on Grandparents Day. 

This acrostic poem printable is great for students because they can use various writing strategies to show how much they love their grandparents. Students use the letters in “Grandma” or “Grandpa” to write an acrostic poem. Then they will write facts about their grandparent of choice. 

This Grandparents Day printable gets its finishing touch when students draw and color a picture of their grandmother or grandfather to add to this special keepsake they can present to their grandparents as a gift.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

Help students struggling to generate their acrostic poems by

  • Provide students with an adjective reference mat or anchor chart.
  • Hold a class discussion about grandparents before completing the activity. Have students share their favorite things about their grandparents. Chart the adjectives used and display the chart while students work on their poems.

Don’t stop there! We’ve got more Grandparents Day gift ideas!
