Blackout Poetry
National Poetry Month
Materials: Old magazine, newspaper, or book and something to draw with!
1
Important! Ask a grown-up if you can use the book or magazine!
2
Scan the page looking for interesting words. Circle them lightly with a pencil or pen.
3
Read your circled words. Can you make a poem out of them? It’s ok to erase & circle new words.
4
Read your poem out loud!
5
Make your poem stand out! I circled my words in marker & connected them with lines.
6
After adding color, it’s time to black out the rest of the page.
7
The words from my poem inspired me to draw!

This is my finished work!
