Dial-A-Snack Poetry: Plan a Platter of a Poem is a great activity to do with your students at the beginning of the year as an “ice-breaker” or to use anytime throughout the year as a break from traditional curriculum. It’s a fun activity that students enjoy doing because it allows for student creativity. It is also a great activity if you need something for a 15 minute time block. You can have students go crazy with their creativity using posters, food cutouts, etc. or keep it simple with loose-leaf paper.

This activity can be used with elementary grades 2-5 but could also be expanded to Kindergarten and first grade as students in these lower grades learn more about syllables. For Kindergarten, it could also be used as a way to challenge your “outside the box” thinkers and high achievers.
