Yum! Our Food Poems (Kindergarten)

Mrs. Icho’s kindergarten class was finishing up some yummy looking breakfast as I walked in today. They were all pretty excited to share about their cinnamon donuts and milk, which was a perfect lead in to our theme today….food poems! It turns out we’re all pretty excited about food. We read “Fried Chicken” by Kwame Alexander and really enjoyed how he said his Grandma’s chicken tasted like “crispy pieces of heaven just fell from the sky.” We worked again on stretching out our ideas and adding detail We wrote. a poem about pizza today as a class and then the students all wrote a line for a group poem.  (We also learned that Mrs. Icho’s mom makes delicious dolmas!)


We love pizza

yummy and has

stretchy cheese.

I was swimming

in a pool of pepperoni!

When I eat it, it rains
