Erasure & Picture Poems

 On Canada Day, everyone was invited to create a Canada-themed “Erasure Poem”. The instructions were simple: 

1. Select a page of text from the printed handouts or book pages available.
2. Use a highlighter to pick the words you want to use and/or a dark marker to “erase” any words you don’t want
3. Once you have created your poem, use the pushpins provided to post it on the Poetry Board with or without your name
4. Take a picture of your poem if you’d like a copy for yourself
 
For Children:
Young children are invited to create an 
 
 
 
poem or a picture poem with stickers.

Here are some of the results:
