- Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are books that were written more than 100 years

Designed and Formatted by Austen Elizabeth Edwards

If possible, it might be helpful to project or share images of Lewis Carroll and the Liddell Sisters as a
visual aid (images are provided in the appendix).

Designed and Formatted by Austen Elizabeth Edwards

In addition to riddles, Lewis Carroll loved to use acrostic poems, and often included them in his books.
An acrostic poem is one where the first letters of each line form a word or words. Following is an acrostic
that Carroll wrote for the Liddell sisters (can you spot their names in the poem?)

Let students know that now they will have the opportunity to write their own acrostic poem using their
name. To start:
- Depending on time and student ages, students could use just their first name or they may choose to use
their first, middle, and last names!
- Have students write their names vertically (down the paper, leaving space for them to fill in lines after
each letter).
- To start, have students see if they can write sentences about themselves, using the first letters of each
line as a guide.
- If students finish with time to spare, challenge them to go back and write a second acrostic, this time
focusing on one element about themselves -for example, their favorite color or hobbies.
- Once everyone has finished, leave time for students to share their poems with the rest of the class

- What do we know about his writing style?
He loved to make up words, use riddles, word play.
We will be seeing this when we watch Hampstead Stage’s performance of Alice in Wonderland (or
if they have already seen the play -remind them about poems like The Jabberwocky which has a
lot of nonsense words)
- Who is the real life girl that some believe was the inspiration for Alice in Alice in Wonderland?
Alice Liddell
- What is an acrostic poem?
A poem where the first letters of each line form a word or words
If you enjoyed writing these poems today, see what other words you can use to write different poems.
