Want to introduce your students to poetry terms in a fun, interactive way? This picnic theme uses food, plates, and placemats to review poetry standards. I created this Poetry Picnic to introduce our third graders to poetry, and I completely revised this product in 2018.

-Lines of poetry, and
At our elementary school, we invited parents to share these poetry learning centers with us, and we had a great time working together! If your teachers and students are intimidated by poetry, this is a great way to make it fun and engaging for them.
I include directions, signs, printables, a parent invitation, and even photos of our Poetry Picnic. I held this event with our third grade students. I think that it could be adapted down to second grade or up to fourth grade or fifth grade.
Here's what other happy teachers have said about my Poetry Picnic learning centers:

-"Loved this last year & am about to use it again this year! Thank you!" (Thanks, Ashby S.!)
-"I am so excited to implement this! The ideas are so wonderful and engaging. I'm sure my students will love this! What a wonderful way to celebrate poetry month!" (Thanks, Sarah K.!)
