Sometimes it’s hard to find a way to introduce poetry to your students–especially when you don’t really enjoy poetry. We have made your job a little bit easier here at Homeschool Share by giving you lots of Tea Time ideas. If you browse the list below, you will find biographical information, books to read, ideas for tea time treats, copywork pages, and notebooking pages, too.

You can simply present the poets and poems to your student by reading to them while gathered round a table with some candles, tea, and treats. Delightful!

You can also take the ideas in the list below and easily turn them into a Tea Time with Great Poets class for your homeschool co-op.
