National Popcorn Day! Who knew?

A fun approach to seasonal lessons is finding obscure holidays! Everyone knows about Valentines and St. Patrick's Day ... but did you know that January 19th is National Popcorn Day?

I don’t think I have ever encountered a student who did not like popcorn. That got me to thinking…why not pop some popcorn and celebrate this special day with students? Check out my latest lesson plan on TpT. Kids will love munching on some delicious popcorn while creating poems about “popcorn”. Choose one of the activities or choose them all! You can even divide your students into groups and have each group write a different poem and then share with the class. This popcorn activity is sure to bring joy to your students’ sweet faces!

Have a poppin’ good time!
