This is a great get-acquainted drama activity that emphasizes the expression of emotions and relating ideas, using interpretive movement and dialogue while integrating life experiences in dramatic play. The wonderful thing about this activity is that you can use it with any topic or idea you want to put together for the appointments. Basically, any topic you want your students to discuss can be used in this interactive activity.
In one version, the students will demonstrate the safe use of the voice and body by selecting movements and portraying a character, using dialogue appropriately. In another version, students discuss topic about themselves and their lives. The possibilities are endless. Another thing I like about this activity is that so many students interact with other students they wouldn’t normally choose to partner with. I love to see them develop communication skills with so many classmates and then share and reflect at the end of the lesson on their favorite appointments.
This game emphasizes:
• quick response
• oral communication
• dialogue creation
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 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
• 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.
“My Appointments” 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.
Thanks for visiting my TPT store! I hope you find products that excite you and your students!
