Weekends

This is an acrostic poem on weekends. Do you know what an acrostic poem is?

Waited seven days
Each minute like an hour
Even the weather cooperated
Kept all my promises

Enjoyment abounding
Never a dull moment
Dad, oh, no, it's over already!

What was your most enjoyable moment this weekend?

I realy don't know what this is about but if I had to do an Hipotesis I think that is a simple poem but the starting letter of each sentence, phrase, etc.. , by its order all together tell something.

See you

Miss Ale,
I really like these poems because they describe things very well. My favorite thing of my weekend was that I had two friends over to sleep. Are we going to write one of these poems in class?
See you in school.

Hello Miss Ale:

For me what you said about to attach to the questions is true because of many reasons.
THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS POEM IS ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL because if you enjoy a weekend allot it passes quickly and you feel that you didnt do anything and if you were bored you will feel that it happens slowly and you dont like it. Thats why I do what I do that is to try SOMETIMES to be bored while you are not doing anything so it dont happens what happens to allot of people. But in school we also have rugby and I go all thetimes I can (ALWAYS) so WE LOOSE 4 OR 5 OUR OF THE WEEKEND"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At least we have fun (sometimes)
Also I have to do Sport so Iloose allot of time so then that boy at the poem complains. My idea is to give one more day to the weekend. Like Spain that the have more celebrations days thatn work days and the economy there is right (not good not bad but just right) and that day should be MONDAY because in all the jokes I know from days of the week the worst is Monday and not FRIDAY (the magical day) because every body thinks good of Fridays. If you want to argue or discuss about what to do in the weekend call me and I will besure that I will win you. If then you can tell us what is an acrostic poem it would be better. The man who wrotethis has the mind of a boy or a little boy wrote it because he copy my idea (that for me is an excuse (sometimes) ) and put it like a poem but at least he express it (more short than I would do it)

Miss Ale I dont know if this is the largest comment I ever left (without putting copyand paste as in theone of 1000 words in english) I put 336 WORDS (thats a big bunch of housepoints now that I think but I dont do it for that I just wright what I think realted to the questions)

See you tommorow

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ITS THE LARGEST COMMENT I EVER WROTE (DONT PASS ME PLEASE)

Hi Miss Ale!
Yeah, I do know what an acrostic poem is. It´s very easy to do one, you put a word vertically and with each letter of the word you com´plete it, but this time horizontally. I remember we did one in 4th or in 5th about our names!
I think the most enjoyable part of my weekend was being with my friends and having fun. But (I agree with Thomas),the best day is Saturday, because when it´s Sunday, you know it´s your last day of weekend and you´ll have to wait one more week!

pd: I don´t know if this is my compulsory post because I didn´t really understand if it counted or not as the compulsory one for the people who had already done the survey.
See you!!!

Hi Miss Ale,

The definition of acrostic is: a poem or other piece of writing in witch particular letters in each line, ussualy the first letters, can be read downwards to form a word or words.
What I most enjoyed about this last weekend was that my father returned home as he had been in the hospital for more than 2 weeks!! Besides I had two parties and I had a great time!
Thanks for posting this as I can tell all my friends that my father is ok.
This can describe how boring is the wekend
See you

Hi miss ale
the best thing I did this week end was to invite Marcos Letemendia to my house. I had a lot of fun with him because we played with my dog and he liked him.

Hi Miss Ale,
In my old school, we learnt a lot of things about poetry and a Acrostic Poem is when you write a word or several words and wright them vertically. Then you have to think of a phrase or word that starts with the letters. Like:
F Friends are forever
U Understands you
N Never lets you down
See you on Monday!!!

martina o said...

Hello Miss Ale,
I would love to do a poem like this one but I do not think that I could do an acrostic poem so creative as that one. Hope that we could do acrostics poem in school y like to do acrostic things, I ussualy do them with names. The good thing of an acrosstic poem is that it is much more creative, and it had the title is in the poem.
see you Clara V 6A

Clara G said...

Hi Miss Ale

Alex D said...

Hello miss Ale,
I dont know what is an acrostic poem, but I think that an acrostic poem is a poem thats tells about a word and you have to put that word vertically and you have to do the poem by starting the sentence with the letter that is in the vertical word and then continue it by the other letter of the vertical word. Just like Andy E sayd.
See you tomorrow!

SilvestreB said...

Hi Miss Ale
Ithink that acrostic it means that you write a vertical word and in each letter you write a sentence.

Luli B olivos said...

see you tomorow
