Happy... what day is it? Thursday, I think. It's summertime and one of my favorite things is not having to keep much of a schedule.
Today I decided to link up to Barbara's first linky party- woohoo!!! She picked a very interesting topic and one I've never seen a linky party for. It's drama lessons! To be honest, teaching drama scares me. I have wanted to do a play with my class for a few years now. Really wanted to do it with my super class last year. But I'm just afraid. A few years ago I bought the play Goldilocks and the Three Bears from Bad Wolf Press. Their slogan is "musical plays for musically timid teachers." (Here I am, raising my hand!) Another teacher at my school told me about it. The play is funny because it involves characters from other well-known stories and isn't just a straight retelling of the story. I played the music for my class and they adored it and sang along after hearing it a few times. But that's as far as I got. So I'm taking the lead from Barbara, sharing this idea of where to get a play, and hoping I get braver next year. "I think I can, I think I can."
They have plays for all grades spanning all curriculum areas.
I hope this helps you get started with drama for your students or helps you find something new.
Thanks for getting this started, Barbara!
