My students love, love, love this play. They've become the rock stars of 3rd grade after performing it, so admired, so confident. Get this play for your kids and see for yourself.
This abridged adaptation of the play, Macbeth, takes 17 minutes to perform. Students love the magic and drama of Macbeth, which is made clear through the kid friendly language. This simplified version of the Shakespeare text is ideal for second language learners. As your ELL students practice this play, you can see their vocabulary and language improve. I encourage teachers to double or triple cast the major parts. allowing many students a chance to play lead parts. Choosing low readers for major rolls will improve their fluency and confidence. Practice this play throughout the year and perform it in the Spring. Practice can be done any time of day, with whole class or small groups. The play can be used to teach character traits, vocabulary, story development, and is a fun bonding experience for the class.
