"So You Have to Put on a Performance………."

 

Need to put on a performance but don’t want to shut down your teaching for weeks to drill, kill and prepare? This workshop will show you how to take a piece of Children’s Literature and turn it in to a charming performance your students, parents, and administrators will love.  Using pieces from the Volumes, improvisation, movement and drama we will explore several stories through Shadow Puppetry, Puppetry and Drama. We will touch on several types of performances – from a simple classroom sharing to a huge grade level production. 

 

We’ll also look at building support through Parent Visits and Informances.  All materials used will be tried and true, kid-tested plans that work and have actually been used.

Treasures of Music Literacy:  Addressing Music Concepts Through Children’s Literature

Children’s literature can provide wonderful opportunities for movement and active music making while addressing comprehension strategies and language fluency. This session will provide your classroom with just a few favorites from your library shelves that you may wish to include in the upcoming months. Familiar singing games and play-parties that are taught in later grades are presented to early childhood teachers with an approach for “little treasures” that are in their classrooms. Great for active little ones or for those days you need a substitute plan that is accessible and engaging.
