    Shakespeare ~3rd & 4th Grade

    Saturday, January 30th, 2016

    My boys studied Shakespeare to go along with Galileo and the Conquistadors.

    That is why I love learning via timeline, you get to learn about things that don’t seem to go together.


    They really liked “The Winter’s Tale“, “Will’s Quill“, and “Hamlet.”

    Although my oldest(9) read a lot of the Lamb’s Tales of Shakespeare as well and seemed to like it(free version available for Kindle).

    Later on I found some really interesting interactive sites for Shakespeare.

    Literary Wonderland has a really cool rap version of Macbeth!

    The BBC site has a fun game they can play, here.

    They also have a 60 second version of Shakespeare that is like reading about the tale in the newspaper which I thought was fun, here.

    My boys spent a lot of time on the Modern Library site, playing their shakespeare quizzes and games.

    Their favorite part of this study was probably the live sword fight from Macbeth that we saw at the Natural History Museum in OKC.


    They could probably watch sword fights all day.

    Because they are boys…

    Do you have a favorite resource for Shakespeare?

    Just found this so I am adding it for my future reference.

    Shakespeare Solos, actors performing key speeches from his plays.

    My youngest boy is 8!

    His birthday request?

    Play video games.

    Ha! We tried to get him to go to a children’s museum or something but that is what he wanted so that is what he did.

    He really likes joke books.

    This kid is sometimes hard to buy for because he is so easy going.

    He does not tell us all of the time what he wants like his older brother.

    I am thankful for laid back birthdays, awesome 8yr olds, and leftover cake!

    Last week with my 7yr old!

    My helper, seriously this kid has been an awesome help the last 6 months!

    He is mister logical and is a great teacher.

    Can’t wait to see what the next year brings with this guy!
