Email: Teatimes all the time
This has to be my favorite email question ever:
Dear Julie and Bravewriter Staff,
Is is okay to do tea time and poetry every day? I was just wondering….
My kids and I did teatimes daily for a long time. Most of them included poetry. We’ve gone through periods where we do them once-a-month too. Really, focus on your own intuitive sense of what creates joy, peace and learning. If teatime and poetry centers your family and leads to a productive morning, why not do them daily!? Don’t overdo them, though. If the enthusiasm wanes, time to try something else.
Tea is the standard way we unwind in my house, so we’ve had math teatimes, history teatimes, celebratory teatimes and wind-down-from-stress teatimes too. ENJOY!
