Even kids can learn about Shakespeare. It is a great opportunity when your teens are learning and your younger ones can glean off of the material somehow. This FREE printable will help you teach Hamlet to your young on.
Your teen’s younger siblings are usually always listening in and learning right along with them. The same goes for them listening in and learning about Hamlet along with the ‘big kids.’ When young ones are at least exposed to literature like Shakespeare’s, they learn early on to appreciate plays and begin to enjoy the genre.
Shakespeare’s plays have fun language and action that is sure to grab your child’s attention. It is easy to be intimidated by teaching Shakespeare, especially if English wasn’t one of your strongest subjects. Yet, broadening a child’s view of literature even from an early age can encourage an appreciation for the arts and inspire them to maybe create some themselves.
Besides this freebie, My Learning Table shares a slew of ways you can help your younger kids to learn all about Shakespeare. They even provide a list of condensed versions of the play that can be way easier for them to understand. Here are a few:
- Shakespeare Stories by Leon Garfield
- Hamlet (No Fear Shakespeare Graphic Novels)
- Hamlet For Kids (Shakespeare Can Be Fun!)
If you are teaching your young learners writing skills, have them respond to what they are learning about Hamlet in a paragraph!
