Pull a Slip
This is one of my all-time favorite drama games! In this improvisational game, players and scene specifics are chosen and a scene begins to develop. During the scene, actors are cued to “pull a slip” of paper from pre-written lines of dialogue and smoothly incorporate them into the scene’s dialogue. It is fun watching the actors problem-solve as the unrelated lines are somehow made to relate to the scene.
This activity emphasizes:
• problem solving
• vocal projection and expression
• stage movement and gestures
• risk taking
This activity includes:
• complete activity instructions
• scene starter character list
• scene starter settings list
• scene starter situations
• list of pull a slip lines
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 lessons 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.
“Pull a Slip” offers everything needed to provide an interesting, innovative, step-by-step unit so that any teacher can confidently incorporate DRAMA into the classroom learning.
