I absolutely love poetry and I really enjoy doing poetry study in our homeschool. My kids and I have had such a great time immersing ourselves in poetry and learning about the famous poets.
This free poetry study from 123Homeschool4Me covers the famous poet Ralph Waldo Emerson and his humorous poem titled Fable. This is a fun poem to introduce poetry study to as it isn’t dry and hard to understand. This poetry study pack includes a summary and explanation of the poem, vocabulary, rhyme scheme, discussion points, grammar, and copywork for a well rounded poetry study. This can be divided into small portions to study over the course of a week or it can be done in one afternoon. This also includes a free poster to hang or put in a poetry or English binder.
