Memory Work

I decided to add memory work to the kid's school days. We have been learning about Shakespeare and reading the play A Midsummer's Dream. We just started on Monday and so far the kids and I have been enjoying it.                                             

                                                                               

I really like the techniques that Ken Ludwig shares in his book How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare, we have been learning lots of new meanings to words, imagery, and rhythm to words. Finally I have been able to appropriately challenge their reading skills too. This past Sunday we saw a group of homeschoolers perform the play A Midsummer's Night Dream and it helped them to get to know the characters. Well, really they don't like how they adapted it now that they are reading the play themselves. The play was fantastic!

                                                                                  
                                                                                  
Learning one line at a time!
