April is National Poetry Month and what better way to celebrate than with a Poetry Tea Time! By now, you’ve heard all about Poetry Tea Time from blogs, other homeschoolers, or even me (I posted about it last April). The tea can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be. Mine lean toward the elaborate since I love a good theme. But opening up a box of cookies along with some hot tea and a good collection of poetry is all you need. PoetryTeaTime.com is a great resource for teaching poetry to kids if you want to make it more of a formal lesson.
Last April we did a Garden Poetry Tea Time with yummy treats like “ants on a log” or “worms and dirt.” If the weather is nice, you can have the tea party right in your own garden. And don’t forget to check out A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. For more inspiration for a Garden Poetry Tea Time, check out our suggestions HERE.
