Seasons of Joy: Elementary Creative Drama Club
Ms. Annette (she/her)
In this ongoing class, we will have a theme each month around which we will center child-led dramatic play, creative drama exercises, beginning theater games, and group acting. Think of it as drama club for your elementary school-aged kid!
US Grade 1 - 4
WHO: Your early elementary aged child! WHAT: A drama club, where we explore the basic elements of acting, drama, and theater together WHERE: Right here online! WHEN: For only a half-hour a week WHY: Because drama activities can help develop the empathy skills in children, help kids the express and control their emotions, help your child understand their feelings and the world, and can promote self-confidence and self-control. Plus it's just fun! In this child-centered, collaborative, and...
Ms. Annette has worn many hats in theater, on and off stage, but one of her favorite things to do is to combine her love of early childhood education with her love of drama!
We will be using some of the same items for each class. I suggest having a little basket full of the following: * lightweight scarves, baby blankets, play silks, dish towels, etc for movement * something that makes a shaking sound, such as egg shakers, a baby rattle, a rhythm instrument, or a homemade shaker made from pebbles in a small lidded container * a bean bag * a lightweight stuffed animal friend Occasionally your child will need additional materials that fit the theme, such as autumn leaf-colored scarves or ribbons for the first class, costume pieces such as hats or capes, or stuffies that fit into the theme. These will be listed in the online classroom.
This is an active class, so please be sure your learner is in comfortable clothing, has plenty of room for moving about-- this is definitely not a sitting class!-- and appropriate footwear if needed in your learning environment.
