Writing an acrostic poem about a RAT shouldn't be too difficult - although perhaps it is only one that you would think about writing at Chinese New Year, because the rat is rarely someone's favourite animal, and certainly not one to inspire poetry in the normal course of events! Here are four printables to choose from, to make the writing more fun.
