Today I want to share with you what our poetry teatime looks like! I aim to do tea with the boys once a week at least because it's such a sweet time around the table that the whole family enjoys.
Lately I have been learning more about Charlotte Mason and her philosophy around education. As I have been looking at different resources, I kept seeing this idea of poetry teatime, and as a lover of tea with my own impressive collection of tea cups and tea pots, I knew I wanted to add this into our homeschool rhythm!
By adding poetry teatime you'll be adding beauty and rest to your day and to your homeschool routine. Don't worry about making it fancy, it can be simple and still special! Keep reading to find out what we included in our teatime...

Poem by A.A. Milne
When I was One, I had just begun.
When I was Two, I was nearly new.
When I was Three, I was hardly me.
When I was Four, I was not much more.
When I was Five, I was just alive.
But now I am six, I'm as clever as clever
So I think I'll be six now Forever and ever.
