This activity is a really interesting one, because you combine art and writing into one final product. Personally, I like it because it takes up my time, which is also why I’m writing about it. Black-Out poetry looks really cool at the end, and by looking at it you can tell what the poem is about. It’s called Black-Out because you ‘black out’ the words you don’t use and you make a poem out of the ones you do use.

Blackout poetry is when you make a poem out of a book page. You black out the words that are not in the poem so someone can read your poem juat by looking at the page.

After circling all the words, you can write your poem on a sticky note. The sticky note was also signed by the person who made it.

First, you circle words that you think were interesting. We can’t have more than three words together. Then, we take words from in between words that we circled. Circle those words too So, if I had the word ‘meat,’ and the word after that was ‘pleasant,’ then I would have to find a word in between those two. Then in between pleasant and blueberry. So on and so forth.Then you make a poem with all those words. After you are done with your poem, then you outline your circles with markers if you haven’t already. You make a picture around the circled words that has something to do with your poem. So, if your poem was about detectives, then you could draw a magnifying glass. Or a detective. Then you could do whatever you want, like sign your name at the bottom, or stick a stick

The project is complete. The picture didn’t need to be about the page, only the poem.

 

This is a great activity to do if you have books that are falling apart lying around. It is an easy and creative activity. It includes writing and drawing which is some of the best things to do in the world when you are bored. Enjoy doing this!
