Adjective-Themed Poetry Teatime

Poetry Teatime (a la Brave Writer) is one of Aidyn's favorite homeschool activities. He lovingly demands it every week, and I try my best to scrape something together. This week, I actually had a spare moment to plan something (!), so we had an adjective-themed poetry teatime.

 Easy table set up with books, drinks, apple slices, candles, and an assortment of colorful adjectives.

 Aidyn sampling a self-described "smooshy" marshmallow (I quickly added "smooshy" to our car assortment).

 We read from Many Luscious Lollipops: A Book About Adjectives (Explore!) by Ruth Heller, who writes many wonderful books about parts of speech and other fun subjects) and
Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? (Words Are Categorical) by Brian P. Cleary (another prolific writer of books about parts of sppech).

                                            The illustrations in Heller's books are amazing.

Our adjective-themed poetry teatime helped tremendously when we moved on to grammar work later in the day.

Here are some more adjective ideas:
