Wednesdays With Will #1 - Sonnets

Updated: Jun 1, 2020

We know that Shakespeare was a playwright, and even that he acted in some of his own plays, but did you know that he was a poet too?

Shakespeare wrote a specific type of poem called a sonnet. In fact, he wrote 154 of them! In this video, we'll break down what makes a sonnet different from other poems and explore writing our own!

Here's the text to the sonnet we started for you:

I see a tree that's really big and tall

The wind is blowing it all to and fro

But soon the leaves will all begin to fall

And make big stacks down on the ground below

Now it's your turn to write the rest! When you're done, email your completed sonnet to us at and we might feature it on our social media!
