Expend energy and get the blood flowing, while allowing students to be vocal is what the ABC Warm-Up is all about! Students will use creative movements and expressive voices as they recite fun, echo-chorus verses on each letter of the alphabet. The verses have rhyme and rhythm and alliteration and phonics!
When your students need to move and groove, this is a wonderful activity that will definitely get the blood pumping! It doesn’t matter if you are an actor or performer! What is important is the enthusiasm with which you model and how much fun you have with it. I like to challenge my students with--who can be the most expressive with their voices and movements? Those students can help lead the next time your class does the activity.
This is a great drama activity that emphasizes so many different elements:
• creative movement
• vocal expression
• physical expression
• choral speaking
• risk taking
This activity includes:
• complete, detailed instructions
• words and movements for activity
• Chart of the ABC Warm-Up
I am excited to share my years of experience and my wealth of knowledge in the successful exploration of adding DRAMA to your class curriculum! I have taught drama and speech for over 30 years! Try using drama in your class and you will be hooked!
Many teachers shy away from using drama games in their classrooms because the drama resources do not give a step by step guide in order to successfully teach the activity!
“Greetings From Marrs” activities are:
• created by a veteran drama teacher
• complete, easy to follow step-by-step instruction
• everything you will need to be able to teach exciting and valuable drama games to your students
• student favorite drama activities
• lesson plans that focus on the important information needed to successfully teach the activity
This creative drama activity supports the National Core Arts Standards.
Teachers who incorporate the arts, especially theatre, operate in an active “hands-on” and “minds-on” capacity. And, their students love it!
Any teacher, who has seen a student become excited, energized and confident through artistic exploration has seen first-hand how arts education engages children and contributes to their overall development.
“A B C Warm-UP” offers everything needed to provide an interesting, innovative, step-by-step lesson plan so that any teacher can confidently incorporate DRAMA into the classroom learning.
