CHECK OUT HOW TO ADD ENRICHMENT TO YOUR HOMESCHOOL TO LISTEN TO MORE EPISODES IN THIS SERIES.
Do you have a subject in your homeschool your children vie to read out loud to the family? I didn’t think it would happen in our homeschool, but it did! My children love to read our poetry reading for the day. They take turns reading, and I rarely get to read it anymore.
Poetry in our homeschool does not look anything like what I imagined. When I first heard about adding poetry to our homeschool, I had flashbacks to high school of analyzing poetry and reading difficult passages that I did not like. I had no idea it could be so enjoyable!
Are you afraid to add poetry to your homeschool because you’ve had the same flashbacks? You don’t have to be afraid! It can be fun and enjoyable for the whole family. Join Crystin Morris and me as we share what poetry looks like in our homeschools. This episode is full of practical tips about how you can add poetry and recitation to your homeschool in as little as five minutes a day!
