About the Cooking Poems Series
by Jorge Argueta
Jorge Argueta’s bilingual cooking poems make delicious, healthy foods a reason to dance and sing. The poems use simple but imaginative language to bring the kitchen to life.
Jorge Argueta’s cooking poems are all about the fun of cooking and eating together. With your group of children, plan a special feast that might include some of the delicious foods found in these poems. You could make up your own holiday, based on something special to your group, to celebrate. Ask children to bring something for the group to share from home – encourage them to cook with their families if they can. You could even make a simple food that doesn’t involve adding heat (like guacamole) in the classroom.Download The Activity Sheets
