Good morning everyone,

This week we are exploring poetry!

Today’s topic is food.

Activities to choose from:

Enjoy the following poems about food (they may also give you some ideas for your own poems):

The Pancake

 Mix a pancake,

Stir a pancake,

Pop it in the pan.

Fry the pancake,

Toss the pancake,

Catch it you can.

Christina Rossetti

 

Sounds Good!

 Sausage sizzles,

crispbreads crack;

hot dogs hiss

and flapjacks snap!

Bacon boils

and fritters fry;

apples squelch

in apple pie.

 

Baked beans bubble,

gravy grumbles;

popcorn pops,

and stomach rumbles …

 

I’m Hungry!

Judith Nicholls

 

Peas

 I eat my peas with honey,

I’ve done it all my life,

They do taste kind of funny,

But it keeps them on the knife.

Good luck!

Summer Days

 I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot.

To lie out in the sun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To play and have some fun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To hit a ball and run.

Oh, I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot

Now summer has begun.

 Anne English

 

Summer Song

 By the sand between my toes,

By the waves behind my ears,

By the sunburn on my nose,

By the little salty tears

That make rainbows in the sun

When I squeeze my eyes and run,

By the way the seagulls screech,

Guess where I am? At the ……!

By the way the children shout

Guess what happened? School is ……!

By the way I sing this song

Guess if summer lasts too long:

You must answer Right or ……!

 John Ciardi

 

Good luck!
