 Poetry & Bible

For the first semester, we will be combining poetry with Bible and reading a selection of Psalms. We will read one Psalm every day from now until Christmas break, discussing just as we would Bible study and regular poetry.

For the second semester, we will do various children’s Bible studies from this site. Our poetry will be a combination of Tennyson, Dickinson, and Wordsworth.
