Theatre with Young Learners
Children love stories and they love being a part of the action, so a great way to work with stories is to act them out in class. This can either be on a grand scale, which involves taking the time to find costumes, make props and rehearse; or it can be a much smaller, quicker activity.
The easiest thing to do is draw the faces of the characters on card and then have students colour them in and cut them out. Whilst they are busy colouring, make a headband for each student using thick paper and sellotape or staples. When the masks are ready, paper clip one to each of the headbands and on with the show!
