Grade 6

Module 38

To write creatively

Activity 1:

To show development in the ability to write a poem [lo 4.3.1]

To write a rough draft and rewrite it [lo 4.5.1]

It is time to turn our focus to some writing – creative writing. We are going to write a poem in this activity, but not just any poem. We are going to write an ACROSTIC poem! This acrostic poem is going to be about you, and we are each going to use our names to write this poem.

Have a look at the example below:

M ulti-talented

A live

R eliable

I nquisitive

L oving

Y oung

N ote-worthy

Make use of the block below to write the rough draft of the acrostic poem about you. Think about the things we have discussed in the module so far – your looks, your likes, dislikes, opinions, hopes, dreams, etc. There are so many things that make you unique, so mention some of them in your poem. Remember, if you are battling to find a describing word that starts with a particular letter, make use of your dictionary – it may give you some ideas.

Once you have completed your rough draft, create your final copy on this page. Make use of colour and fancy letters to make your name stand out. Decorate your page when you are done.

Assessment

LO 4
WRITING The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.
We know this when the learner:
4.1 writes to communicate information:
4.1.2 writes a description of a person, object or simple process;
4.1.4 expresses an opinion and gives reasons for it;
4.2 writes for social purposes:
4.2.2 identifies some differences between formal and informal style;
4.3 writes creatively:
4.3.1 shows development in the ability to write poems, stories, play scripts and dialogues (e.g. by using poetic devices).
4.5 understands the writing process and uses developing knowledge of language structure and use:
4.5.1 writes rough drafts, reads them critically, gets feedback from the teacher and classmates, and rewrites;
4.5.3 edits writing, using knowledge of structure (e.g. grammar, spelling, punctuation) and tools.

Memorandum

This activity gives learners the opportunity to write creatively about themselves. They will have to write an acrostic poem using their name. Ensure that learners understand what an acrostic poem is by studying the example provided. Allow them to make sure that there is a block provided for the rough draft. They may brainstorm words and try various combinations of words. Once they have finalized their poem, they must do the final copy in the next block. Encourage them to make it a special page, using colour and fancy letters to make their name stand out. Should time and resources allow, this activity could be extended to the art lesson. Learners could do their poems on large pieces of paper that could be put up for display.

Remind learners to check spelling of words and make dictionaries available to them. Use the Educator’s Assessment Chart to compete your assessment.
