Green Birth – An Erasure Poem

In honour of National Poetry Month (and upcoming Earth Day), Ms. Johanna from the B.A.S.E. Daycare head office created an activity plan for daycare educators to help daycare students make their very own erasure or strike-out poems.

She thought she’d try to make one herself using an article from the Touching B.A.S.E. on Daycare Matters Winter 2018 edition! She sends a big thank you to Giorgia Nico Daley from Pierre Elliott Trudeau B.A.S.E. Daycare for her great article “The Birth of a Gardening Community at Pierre Elliott Trudeau,” which provided Ms. Johanna with an excellent source for her erasure poem.

Here it is! Ms. Johanna thinks B.A.S.E. daycare students can do a much better (and prettier) job than her! Do you accept the challenge?

    This is pretty exciting! My main interests now are poetry and making small books, I am also the Representative for Ontario of The League of Canadian Poets, and responsible for having an erasure poet from Montreal, Maxianne Berger, present at The Word Summit in Toronto in June. To have students doing this is a treasure, and a gift to them. Congratulations to that teacher!
