Have you seen the new Poetry Tea Time website?
We have been trying to be more consistent about having poetry tea time each week this month.
Our first one this month, I pulled together real quick. Jack had Chai and I had coffee. I had some store bought treats that we enjoyed.
Jack enjoyed using the Star Lord cup.
We read some Shel Silverstein.
We were able to enjoy our second tea outside on the lawn since the weather was so nice. I also put out a sketch pad and some beeswax crayons.
For those with younger kids, I highly suggest The Golden Book of 365 Stories. It has a poem or story for every day of the year, each dated and going along with the season or holiday. I still pull it out for the poems.
Jack drew a tea cup while I read. He wasn’t in the mood to read this day, which was fine. We have both really enjoyed adding this to our weekly rhythm. In fact, one of the first things he asked me today was if we were doing tea time today and if not, when. Try it you will love it!
