The Beauty Of Combining Poetry and Art In Your Homeschool

Combining poetry and art in your homeschool is a wonderful way to help your child learn. Enjoy these tips for getting started and a free worksheet!

art and poetry

I believe poetry paints beautiful pictures. Poems are descriptive. Emotional. Word art for the ears. But if your student isn’t an auditory learner, poetry can be heavy, confusing, and just a bunch of jumbled metaphors. This is why I believe it’s wise to start combining poetry and art in your homeschool!

My oldest son needed to “see” everything. He is a visual learner. I decided to let him practice listening by sketching what was being read. Of course we had to incorporate some rules – no superhero drawings. After he got a few good Batman sketches out of his system, we finally hit our poetry and art stride. Some days he sketched the literal words, some days the metaphors. Some poetry left him feeling like drawing a wildfire of colors. While other poems lead to science lessons and nature walks. But that’s homeschooling. Exhausting a subject and learning all the things!

The Value Of Combining Poetry And Art In Your Homeschool

You might feel overwhelmed trying to combine art and poetry. I’m not a fan of sketching any of Edgar Allan Poe’s poor victims. But a clock or raven isn’t too intimidating. My husband asked me the other day …

Q. What happens when Edgar Allan Poe paints his rhymes?
A. He makes Poe-ART-Ry.

Maybe we should just stick to drawing. If you’re wondering how we paired Nana’s great tutorials with poetry, it’s easy! You ARE an ARTiST Clubhouse Members can head to their dashboard and use the SEARCH function. If you’re reading about nature, seasons, animals, etc. you can search all the tutorials by topic! Here are a few of our favorites:

Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost & Fall Aspen Tree

Robert Frost wrote Nothing Gold Can Stay in 1923. Did you know Robert Frost never graduated college, but received over 40 honorary degrees?

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Out in Colorado, gold is the aspen tree in fall. It’s a beautiful sight. One worth chalking as you read Robert Frost. If you’re studying this great American poet, be sure to read Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

Hope by Emily Dickinson and Hummingbirds

I am a huge Emily Dickinson fan. The fact that she hid her poetry away in a trunk because she didn’t think it was any good … I think as moms we can all relate to doubting ourselves. Am I good enough to homeschool these children? Are we doing the right thing? Yes sweet mama, you’re doing an amazing job! Thankfully shortly after Emily’s death her sister found 1,800 poems and had them published. Hope is my very favorite poem. It is believed to have been written in 1861.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops – at all –
And sweetest – in the Gale
is heard -And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest Sea
Yet – never – in Extremity
It asked a crumb – of me.

Did you know hummingbirds migrate in the winter? They are the only birds that fly backwards and have no sense of smell. Things you learn while reading poetry.

The Mountain & The Squirrel by Emerson and a Squirrel

The mountain and the squirrel
Had a quarrel,
And the former called the latter
“Little prig.”
Bun replied,
“You are doubtless very big;
But all sorts of things and weather
Must be taken in together
To make up a year
And a sphere.
And I think it no disgrace
To occupy my place.
If I’m not so large as you,
You are not so small as I,
And not half so spry:
I’ll not deny you make
A very pretty squirrel track.
Talents differ; all is well and wisely put;
If I cannot carry forests on my back,
Neither can you crack a nut.”

Our favorite Emerson line has become our family motto: Live in the sunshine. Swim the Sea. Drink the Wild Air.

The Beauty Of Combining Poetry and Art

Poetry is much more than reading some ridiculous rhyming words. Unless you’re Dr. Seuss and then it’s just cool. The poets behind these stories have stories of their own! You ARE an ARTiST Complete Clubhouse Members will find Poet Biography Pages (20 total, plus a blank page and the My Favorite Poem Worksheet) in their membership dashboard. These pages give your students an opportunity to learn more about the people behind the prose.

Poet Pack includes:

  • Mark Twain
  • Sara Teasadale
  • Christina Rossetti
  • Emily Bronte
  • Sarojini Naidu
  • Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  • Maya Angelou
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Henry David Thoreau
  • Lord Byron
  • Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
  • T.S. Eliot,
  • John Keats
  • Langston Hughes
  • William Shakespeare
  • William Butler Yeats
  • William Wordsworth
  • ee cummings
  • Edgar Allan Poe
  • and Robert Frost.

Free Favorite Poem Worksheet

You can download this free Favorite Poem pdf now. Sometimes we (maybe just me?) harp on the reading and memorization of poetry. But we forget one of the most important questions: why do you like this poem. How does this make you feel? Which line is your favorite?

Memorizing dozens of lines can be a lot for a student. Rather than memorizing the entire poem, ask them to memorize their favorite lines. Full disclosure, I only have the first 4 lines of Hope memorized. And I’m okay with that.

    Maybe you have a student like mine who hates poetry. He is a bit more logical and didn’t appreciate all the metaphors. Go ahead and cross out “Like” and write “Dislike”. Those opinions are valid too!

    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Homeschool Tea Time

    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    Winter is a wonderful time for tea in your homeschool. Most of us have seen lovely homeschool tea time spread photos on social media and feel intimidated to try our own. Or perhaps, you aren’t quite sure where to begin. 

    Well, I want to share a poetry tea time with you today that is easy to set up, and every bit counts as educational. And, if your children are anything like mine, they will be asking when the next poetry tea time is. 

    One of the best poems to enjoy during winter is the renowned Robert Frost’s, Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening. It is one of those poems that instantly comes to life with all of the delights of winter. 

    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    You ARE An Artist’s art tutorial of Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening will help you round out an entire hands-on lesson for your family to enjoy. 

    We do think this poem is worthy of a special tea time. This time of year can be busy and leave us feeling stressed about the holidays. But Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening helps us remember it is ok to stop and linger a bit at God’s wonderful creation. Like the traveler, we all have obligations to get to. But we also can stop and take in the beauty around us, if even for a moment. Often, that is precisely the refreshment we need. 

    That’s is why we think this tea time with chalk pastels will leave you and your children feeling refreshed and renewed for the winter season. 

    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    What Do You Need For A Snowy Art Homeschool Tea Time

    The supplies you need for the art lesson are minimal; chalk pastels and construction paper.  And a Clubhouse Membership from You Are An Artist, not only to enjoy this chalk pastel project, but you will also get over 700 other art lessons that your entire family can do and a beautiful poem to print out.

    We love the picture book Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening that is illustrated by Susan Jeffers too. The beautiful illustrations that accompany Robert Frost’s words are a perfect combination to share with your family. 

    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    The fun part is what else you can add! We like to enjoy tea or hot cocoa to drink and make an entire experience of it. The kids sip as I read. 

    We also add some treats like tree-shaped sugar cookies or something white to signify snow. But you can add anything that your kids might find exciting. I think ice cream would also be fun for this tea time. Remember, there are no rules!

    You may be wondering if you have to add any snacks or drinks. I will share with you why I almost always do. My children linger longer with something to sip or snack. It’s true. If I want to read to my kids and keep their attention, I add a little something that counts as a treat. It also makes poetry tea time with art a special time to look forward to. We like to celebrate the end of each week with art. 

    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    Once you decide on all of the fun stuff, now let’s prepare our educational resources. 

    If you are afraid that you can’t count art or poetry tea time as educational, you might need a fresh new perspective. Let me assure you, art and poetry tea time is 100% educational. Let’s discuss all of the educational aspects of this single project. 

    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    What Can We Learn From Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    • New Art Techniques. Your child will learn chalk pastel techniques to create a lovely piece of art. Hands-on art with chalk pastels is an excellent fit for all types of learners, and it’s a great way to foster their creative expression. 
    • History. You can dive into the biography of Robert Frost; he was a well-known American poet with four Pulitzer Prizes. You may very well have heard some of his most famous works already! Older children can help research his life and other poems if you want to travel down a few new rabbit trails together! 
    • Poetry. Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening is not just a beautiful poem; there is much you can learn from it alone. If you have a high school student, you may want to discuss the poem’s rhyme scheme and other poetic devices. It is full of imagery and literary devices, all worth pointing out as well. 
    • Nature. Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening fits perfectly into winter nature study. If you are working through a winter nature study curriculum, this tea time and art project will coincide nicely. 
    • Togetherness. Winter is the best time to cozy up with warm drinks, create art, and discuss poetry. Even your earliest learners can sit in a draw with chalk on a piece of construction paper while listening along. 
    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening Tea Time

    We hope you enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of winter with this special poetry tea time! Celebrate winter nature and bond over the arts together as a family with books, art, and tea.
