Tuesday’s Blackout Poems

It’s day two of Blackout Poetry Week and I’m here to recognize some stellar student #blackoutpoets from Twitter and Instagram! Don’t forget, every day Jason Stephenson and I will feature standout poems from those participating and I’m sure you will agree that these two poems are no exception.


6th grader, Gabby made a poem that is both beautiful & powerful! Way to go, Gabby! gabby4

Unfortunately, this picture does not do Gabby’s work justice. Click on the picture for a better look!


This next standout piece is by an 8th grade poet and comes from The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Great job!


Lastly, I wanted to give a shout out to @CherylTeaches for her #blackoutpoets bulletin board!
