This Tea With A Poet unit is perfect for some December winter fun. 

It is focused on the poet Clement Clarke Moore, famous for his poem "Tis' The Night Before Christmas." You will also be introduced to classical composer Handel and American artist Norman Rockwell.


You will enjoy making the easiest gingerbread cookies you have ever made, thinking about your favorite place to visit on Christmas day, reflecting on the feeling within your home, and learning some great words.
