Shakespeare can be so much fun to teach in your homeschool. I love creating my own Shakespeare unit studies instead of using a set curriculum for it as we like to tie it into our fine arts studies.
FREE Resources and Printables to Study ShakespeareAre you wanting to teach your children about Shakespeare? I remember learning about Shakespeare when I was in highschool and assumed it was only for highschoolers because of the adult themed content in some of his plays. I was suprised when I joined a Charlotte Mason style co-op and they were teaching Shakespeare to their elementary aged students! Shakespeare isn’t just for highschool. Obviously there are some plays that you won’t want to teach your younger students quite yet, but there are others that are well suited and enjoyable for all ages.

I am excited to share with you these free resources and printables to help you to study Shakespeare with your children!
