One entire month of planning done for you – I dare you to enjoy Shakespeare.

I love teaching Shakespeare’s plays, and I want you to love it too. I’ve been teaching and improving this unit for over ten years. All of the thinking has been done for you. I love annotating my plays and books. I’ve taken all of the annotations made in my play over the years and incorporated them in a guide to help you guide students and help students understand. Many people (including teachers) get overwhelmed with Shakespeare because of the language. This unit has been created with the student in mind. The activities are thorough, but simple enough for students to understand and enjoy the play.

This unit has everything a teacher needs to teach Hamlet. Just photocopy and teach. Seriously it’s that easy. There’s no longer a need for hours of research and piecing together bits of information and activity sheets you don’t know what to do with.

This is a whole, complete unit, from scene summaries, important notes and annotations notes to help students understand what they are reading. I have also included an introduction to the play, a student guide, a teacher guide with detailed lesson plans, quizzes, a creative assignment, and tests (all with answers and evaluation grids), and a comprehensive answer key. Everything has its place and teaches a specific skill.

The unit is appropriate for students in grades 10, 11 and 12.

The unit includes :

– An attractive, interactive, multimedia PowerPoint presentation introducing the play (17 slides)

-A Student Study Guide (with activities, Act, and scene questions…) and various activities (14 pages)

-A Teacher Guide (with detailed, comprehensive lessons, unit plan, and additional notes to guide students.) -9 pages and 16 complete lessons. The teacher Guide also includes links to the audiobook (the exact time to cue the audio), AND it includes a list of speaking roles if reading out loud in class)to help with time management and organization.

-18 pages of comprehensive scene summaries and important notes for each scene (annotations for each scene)***THIS IS A TEACHER FAVORITE!

A creative Hamlet Guess Who? Game to help students understand the characters. (What’s fun about this game is that it can be played from the beginning of the play right to the end, and students’ answers will change depending on the act they are reading.) LOTS OF FUN!

-A comprehensive answer key for all questions and activities. (24 pages)

-Comprehension quiz on Acts 1 and 2 in Word format for easy modifications (with evaluation grid) and answer key.

-Mid-play evaluation – The Parody – creative writing and analysis (in Word format for easy modifications – with evaluation grid)

-Summary guide (highlighting the significant events from each scene with important analytical information) – Throughout my years of teaching this play, I have amounted excellent notes and annotations, listing the most significant actions throughout each scene. I have retyped these annotations to help you teach the play, so your students will understand it (and so will you). (18 pages)

-The culminating evaluation includes three different versions of the final unit test with evaluation grid and answer key (in Word for easy modifications)

Includes a total of 109 pages.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Daily Math Warm Ups Sampler FREEBIE”

by I Love 1st Grade by Cecelia Magro

1st Grade



Daily Math Warm Ups are an easy way to get your students brains ready for math in 1st grade. This pack has 10 slides (1 week worth of lessons) as well as a practice page that corresponds with the day. Simply project and teach!

This freebie is a great way to check out my product line before buying.

We do Math Warm-ups every day before we begin our math lesson. They are a review of a variety of math skills based on the standards, that are completed whole group. After we finish our warm-ups, we are ready to begin our lesson of the day.

Since the lessons are done whole group, it is best to project the day’s warm up so everyone can see. You can project it from your computer or print it out and project it using your document camera.
Students solve problems on white boards. They can work in table groups, individually or with their elbow partner. You may also choose to use these as a small group intervention – whatever best fits the needs of the students you teach!

After you complete the two pages of the day, there are optional follow-up practice sheets that you may use as extra practice or as an assessment to see which students mastered the skills reviewed. Based on results, you can then teach small groups to review or enrich math knowledge.

These easy to use and rigorous warm-ups are a simple way to get your students ready to do math!

As always, please ask questions before purchasing. Thank you so much!♥
