Brave Writer Lifestyle: Poetry Teatime

April Poetry Teatime

We’re enjoying Poetry Teatime in April!

We’ll be discussing this month’s theme on Instagram and in the Homeschool Alliance, and I’ll likely share on Facebook Live too.

For regular encouragement as you implement the elements in your home this year, sign up for our monthly BWL email (sent on the 1st of every month in 2018). This month’s newsletter includes these FREE downloadable resources:

  • Hand-lettered Tips
  • Conversation Starters

This month, my hand-lettered tips focus on poetic devices. Look up each one and see if you can find them in any of the poems you read this month.

We’re also including our Poetry Teatime Quick Start Guide plus book ideas for every age. Enjoy!

I also want to make you aware that poet Amy Ludwig VanDerwater is joining us in the Homeschool Alliance to host a webinar workshop about poetry for you and your kids!

If you sign up now for our 7-Day Free Trial, you will automatically get to come to the webinar on April 5. You can discover whether the Alliance is a good fit for you, free of charge! Can’t wait to see you at the webinar and we hope you stick around!
