    So I was thinking about poetry.  How do you do this?  Do you just pick one poet and read there poems once a week?

    Also, has anyone ever split the terms up and done say Term 1 : Poetry, Term 2: Composer Term 3: Art/Picture?

    Just revisiting for next year. 


    We pick a poet, composer, and an artist and do our studies for a 6 week run.  Sometimes we read one poem everyday, sometimes once or twice a week.  I think that may change as the poems get a little more intense (Longfellow – I think I want my girls to have time to think about what he said in that really loooonnngg poem =) ). 

     I think you could do it that way, but I also think that breaking it up through out the year might help you to retain an appreciation for it.  =)  Over load of a subject could cause someone to develop a distaste for that subject, math being a good example, heehee.


    For poetry, we pick a poet and read one poem daily for at least a couple of weeks.  We often repeat favorites before we move on to a new one.

    I like to do the poet, music and artist first thing in the mornings.  I wouldn’t like trying to cram each one into a term.  We like to “live” with our poet or artist or whoever for a while.
