Need an excuse to eat green eggs and ham, read Dr. Seuss, play on Facetime – AND count it as school? Dr. Seuss Facetime Teatime has all that and more.
For the last few months, we have incorporated Poetry Teatime into our homeschool. It started with hot tea and scones and evolved into hot chocolate and cookies/cupcakes. But, it always includes lots of poetry.
We were sharing about our Poetry Teatimes with our cousins (who also homeschool), and they decided to join us. The thing is — they live in another state. So, we came up with FaceTime Teatime. Every other week we FaceTime them and begin sipping from our fine china and delicately patting our mouths. We read poetry selections we love and quote those we have memorized. It has become one of those times we look forward to at our house.
Today, since it’s Dr. Seuss’ birthday, we decided to have Dr. Seuss Teatime. We sipped hot chocolate from our tea cups and enjoyed green eggs and ham on our china plates.
Some of us donned our Cat in the Hat t-shirts, while others even had Whoville hairstyles.
The girls read to each other from every Dr. Seuss book we own! They were having so much fun that we only ended FaceTime Teatime when the iPad finally died…after over an hour!
Poetry Teatimes have become a staple in this household. We just added a little twist so we could enjoy time with some very special people in our lives. Want to have a Dr. Seuss Poetry Teatime at your house? Check out some of these books at your local library.
