Why We Use a Poetry Teatime Planner

This Poetry Teatime Planner has been extremely helpful for me to schedule and organize successful teatimes with my boys.  Poetry teatime is one of the highlights of our week.

I created the Poetry Teatime Planner because I found myself unprepared for several teatimes. With an erratic schedule, my head was spinning and I was being pulled in a gazillion directions. I had no special treat nor plan of attack.

Sure, grabbing the nearest snack and opening to random poems worked.  I shared a few of our favorite poetry book titles over at iHomeschool Network blog.  My boys enjoyed listening to and discussing the wide variety of poems.

But, I felt a disconnect, an awkwardness that did not sit well. I was having a hard time relaxing and enjoying the moment because I felt so scattered and discombobulated.

I knew that if our homeschool was going to rock poetry teatime that we’d need to have a plan and get organized. And to make it really shine, I’d need to make it a collaborative effort with my boys.

 

Teatime is an excellent time to connect with your kids! Use this free printable teatime planner to organize successful poetry teatimes.

Poetry Teatime Planner: An Interactive Project with Your Kids!

My boys eagerly anticipate our Poetry Teatime events.  I thought it would be fun to have them contribute their ideas and hopes for themed poetry teatimes.

We used one of our poetry teatimes to plan future events. I placed our Poetry Teatime Planner on a clipboard.  After a few poems were read and discussed, we started brainstorming the types of poems to explore, as well as themes and fun extras.

Nature study and science have been two hot topics in our homeschool.

I was not surprised when Bear, our budding entomologist, requested insects.  Professor and Smiley have been doing a bit of bird watching and asked to hear poems about birds.  Captain, our pet manager (puppy, cockatiel, Betta fish), agreed that reading poems about animals would be cool.  Bear also requested Nursery Rhymes, one of his forever favorite themes.

I jotted down their ideas.  Later, I went through a few of our poetry books and recorded their pages for quick reference.

From those themes, we chatted about sweet treats and snacks, decor, and possible crafts. Poetry teatime with a party planning twist!

An Excellent Resource To Add To Your Poetry Teatime Planner

Our family has been so blessed by the work of Julie Bogart and her Brave Writer team.  Her message has helped me find peace in our relaxed, eclectic homeschooling approach.

Naturally, I did a happy dance when I found out that Julie and Brave Writer writing coach, Nancy Graham, collaborated to bring us Poetry Teatime Companion: A Brave Writer Sampler of British and American Poems.  This resource is #1 in our poetry resource section!

We use the Poetry Teatime Companion as a spine for our celebrations. With nature and seasonal themes, the selected poems are perfect for our poetry teatime events.
