**This is a prop kit that will be shipped to you (free shipping )
Increase your student's interest in Shakespeare by letting them jump into the scene with these acting props. Don't let them sit at their desks reading in that monotone dribble. Instead, let them throw on these props and come to the front of the room, book in hand, to lunge and parry with Mercutio. Shakespeare will live in your classroom.
Read some of the reviews of teachers that used my prop kits:
"Wish there was an A++++++ button! My students LOVE this!!!!!!!! The props actually entice them to volunteer (fight over who gets) to read the plays! THANK YOU!!!!"
"I used the materials this past school year with my 8th graders and it was a hit. Students who normally hate reading a loud begged to in order to wear the head pieces. Thanks so much!"
"Having so much fun with the props! This saved me a lot of running around and time!"
You can still increase your depth of knowledge and teach the Common Core, but this time ---they will listen.
5—black mourning bands
1—poisoned wine goblet
2—crowns (secure ends together by stapling)
Instructions for use:
1. Take your cues from the play.
2. Be creative. Use props for multiple scenes, perhaps in different ways.
3. Supervise students at all times.
Using props and oral readings while studying drama greatly increases reading comprehension, thus allowing students to engage in truly meaningful, analytical conversations.
