It’s finally here! If you haven’t heard, April 7th – 12th is blackout poetry week on Instagram and Twitter. Jason Stephenson and I will be co-hosting the festivities and we hope that you and your students will join us! Please use the hashtag #blackoutpoets throughout the week and check out other poems from all across the world! Follow our Blackout Poetry Twitter Account to see examples and to stay up to date on all the action during the week.
Each day we will be awarding a “Poet of the Day” in the following categories: elementary, middle school, high school, teacher and author, and posting them on our blogs. “Poet of the Day” lists will be on Jason’s blog on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and here on Literacy Love on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Feel free to use the blackout poets classroom and school badges on your own blogs. If you do, please share your classroom or personal blog link in the comments section so others can read your poems.
Have a great week blackout poets!
