Romeo and Juliet Prologue Worksheet

This Romeo and Juliet Prologue Worksheet are an exercise for children ages four to eight. It can also be used as a test of vocabulary skills when you have a very young child in the classroom.

“Romeo and Juliet” is a classic story of two lovers who fall in love and end up marrying each other despite a strong rivalry between them. This worksheet will help students develop their own versions of this story. Reading it aloud, with the lines in full, to your students can also help them practice reading the story and establishing proper English language usage.

The first thing you should do is to prepare a hard copy of the story and then print out the relevant parts of the text. (You may need to purchase software that will make the text onto a computer screen for you.) Then write these lines on a white piece of paper and then place them on the student’s desk or work space. When they come home from school and use the English Language Arts Guidebook they will understand the message behind the lines.

Students will be much more successful if they understand the meaning of the words as they read the romance. Look for words that could have multiple meanings. For example, in one line, Romeo says, “I’ll be hanged for it.” “Hanging” means punishment or death.

The Prologue worksheet you will prepare includes four paragraphs, each of which begins with a four-line paragraph (two lines for each paragraph). Use these four lines to teach the student the main idea of the Prologue.

For instance, the first paragraph will read: “In Romeo and Juliet, two young lovers marry against their will and are forever changed by their experience.” Then you will read a poem that includes a romantic line at the beginning and ends. Then you will read a short story about two lovers in search of each other.
