📢 Storytellers, welcome to the stage! Every week we will work with a story and practice retelling it using our own words. We will practice using body language to engage our audience. We will use intonation and include pauses in our speech. Retelling stories is a terrific way for us to practice public speaking skills in a fun way. 🎭 STRUCTURE ⚛ Classes will alternate: one week students will listen to a story and create art; the next week they will read a story and work in small groups to...
I am a trained Waldorf teacher for grades 1-8. I have written and directed class plays for my class (Maya mythology and Don Quixote). I have seen firsthand how including speech work and drama in the curriculum helps develop children's confidence and language abilities. Within the Waldorf curriculum, the traditional Indian art forms of Rangoli and Kolam are introduced as an extension of “form drawing.” I spent close to a year in India, traveling from the Himalayas in the North to Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of the subcontinent. India’s enchanting land and culture taught me so much! I look forward to sharing this experience with you.
If children have chalk and a blackboard or a sidewalk readily available, I will encourage them to practice these art forms in a larger place outside of class time.
⚛ Unlined paper and crayons or colored pencils ⚛ A yoga mat or soft surface and space to move ⚛ Some weeks, there will be a printable template with dots to help students create more complicated Kolam designs
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
