Tea and Poetry

Tea table set beautifully!

Tea table set beautifully!

Miss. K and Miss. L have just called me to Tea and Poetry! They set the table, picked some flowers and made the tea.  They chose to have tea inside because it was too cold to go outside.  We talked about tea etiquette and tea making.  (They had made mine too weak!)

We sipped our tea and listened to poems I selected to read aloud on a certain theme.  We chose some to discuss and repeat.  We realized that we all loved different word pictures in these poems.  These poems reminded us to look at the world with a ‘word-painter’s-eye’ and be more descriptive in our own writing.

Charlotte Mason encourages parents to “put children in contact with the minds of thinkers.

Poetry engages our imagination and feeds our minds. So, next time you have a tea-break, make it special and have Poetry and Tea!

  1. Ahh, I’m looking forward to doing this sort of thing with mine. I remember setting up similar stuff with my own ma. And my babes are showing all the signs of continuing the tradition🙂
