Stomping and Romping with Shakespeare

Did you know that Green Eggs and Ham is written in iambic pentameter? Model the rhythm of language using Dr. Seuss’s tale. Direct class members to march about the room tapping their right foot on the first syllable and stomping their left foot on the second. It is then easy to switch young learners attention to the same rhythms in “A Winter’s Song” from Love’s Labour’s Lost and “A Witches’ Spell” from Macbeth. A romping, stomping introduction to Shakespeare.
