Inspired by a blog that I started following because of the Slice of Life challenge, I was decided to celebrate Poetry Month by writing more poetry. I wanted to try the blackout poem that Leigh Anne had beautifully shared.
So, I started a couple of different ones, and then I decided to pull the summary from the book jacket of Fish In A Tree! I read this book recently for the first time, and I am hooked! It is fantastic! I have recommended it to colleges, students, and friends!
So, I took a picture of the jacket and used an app to mark out all of the extra words that I didn't need! Then, while I was writing the poem, I actually took out more of the words!!
Then I took what was left to create this:
I LOVE it!!! I will write more of these and share them with my students! I can't wait to see what they create!!
