Join us for Blackout Poetry Week
April 7th -11th
Use #blackoutpoets on Twitter and Instagram
Fellow teacher and poetry enthusiast Jason Stephenson and I would like to invite all educators, students and authors to help celebrate poetry in the classroom by participating in a worldwide Blackout Poetry Event on Twitter and Instagram. You can find more information about how cool Blackout Poetry is by going here and here.
Middle Grade Example:
Magic is gone
into the night pale white street light
dark shadows tight pull sky blue beautiful
Magic answered flung into golden whirls curls like the rest of the world
From: A Snicker of Magic, by Natalie Lloyd
We’d love to see you do a blackout poem of a page from your favorite novel, a newspaper article or something lying around your home. Students from all over the world will be participating and sharing their love of words.
Please contact @blackoutpoets, @lesleymosher and @teacherman82 for more information.
