We celebrated Robert Frost's birthday this week with a poetry tea in his honor. We held our poetry tea at breakfast time with homemade potato pancakes, apples, cheese, nuts, raisins, and berries with cream. We also had two kinds of tea.
We concentrated on four poems for this tea -- A Girl's Garden, Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, Mending Wall, and The Road Not Taken. I read each poem to the children. Well, actually, I sang A Girl's Garden to them since I remembered performing it in high school. Then we listened to some lovely readings of the poems on YouTube.
- A Girl's Garden The kids were impressed that I still remembered all the phrasing as well as the tune of this song since I sang it so VERY LONG AGO. After all, I graduated from high school back in the Stone Age. LOL
- Stopping By Woods... This one is great to listen to with your eyes closed and write down all the sounds you here ~ sleet, snow, horse hooves....
- Road Not Taken We listened to two readings of this poem. I like this one for the reading and this one for the photography.
