My children’s interests are being peaked. We went to the library yesterday for our book club presentation and this is what my children came running up to me with afterwards.
These are two of the plays that we have read this year by Shakespeare. I say plays, but we are actually reading from Beautiful Stories From Shakespeare by E. Nesbit. We are also watching animated videos. All I am interested in this year is familiarizing them with Shakespeare.
When they came running to me with the books that have a comic book style and wanted to check them out, I knew something had to be arousing their interest.
Here’s what the books look like on the inside of them.
They seem to be pretty basic, but appear to be great as a review. My children want us to act out the plays, using these books. They also informed me that I could be the queen so I could hug on the donkey (he he, such love they have for me).
My children also found these books on the table that the library was discarding.
Naturally, my children knew we needed them. “Especially this one Mama, so we will know how to act out our plays,” they are insisting. For $ .25 each, we brought them home with us.
There’s going to be a live theatrical production of Julius Caesar about two hours from our home. We are hoping to get to attend.
The Shakespeare interest is arising. I’m accomplishing my goal for this year, yea! Happy homeschooling everyone.
