“I’m mad about …..” by Katherine Gallagher with Teacher Notes

Leave a comment

I’m mad about . . .

I’m mad about honey

that’s runny and funny

I’m mad about cheese

that grows on old trees

I’m mad about chilli

that’s spice-cool and silly

I’m mad about eggs

and rainbow-striped veg

I’m mad about jam

on speckled green ham 

I’m mad about pepper

the hotter the better

 

Teacher’s note:

This exercise can be fun with ages 6 – 12. Give them Ogden Nash’s poem.

Mustard  as a prompt  

I’m mad about mustard,

                                      even on custard.

Then have a brief discussion  in which you ask them what they’re mad about

foodwise.
