Using skills I've learned by teaching theatre in the elementary school for many years, I enhance what they do by teaching students to enact three of them: Hey Diddle Diddle, Little Miss Muffet, and Old King Cole (each posted separately). . We also act out one speech from Shakespeare which is posted separately.
This one is great after doing a unit on spiders.
When teaching nursery rhymes, I teach them how to use “their mute buttons” and something I call “TV countdown” to help keep them quiet and focused during the rehearsals and performances.
