Ms. Kratz's Drama Classes

Greetings to all my Drama students!!

Here’s what we’ve been working on:

Kindergarten and 1st Grade are “Marching into Spring” with two new poems, acting out “Are You My Mother”, doing the “Do Si Do” square dance, singing and signing, “You are My Sunshine”, True Colors”, and “It’s a Wonderful World”. They are also learning, “What I Am” by Will I Am, the “Hokey Pokey” and more!!

2nd Graders are doing Reader’s theater, using the Green Screen, and acting with puppets!

3rd & 4th Graders will be writing their own scripts about something they are passionate about and performing using the Green Screen. They may choose to use puppets or props.

5th Grade will be doing interviews about their trip to Rock Eagle. We will be showing the videos to 4th Grade. Students will be writing questions to explain what was needed and sharing their favorite part.

Things you can do at home:

K&1 Retell your favorites stories. Use stuffed animals like you would a puppet to retell your favorite part.

2-5 You can play “Charades”. Also read stories out loud, using expression.

3-5 Remember the game “Transformation” when you took a cloth and “Changed it” into something else? That is one of my favorites!!!

Have fun with your family!!

****Drama Club****

I hope you are all practicing your lines, songs, and dances for “Oz”!!

Remember to use EXPRESSION!!!! Use a mirror so you can watch yourself. Ask family members to read other parts so you will know when to say what.

I miss you all and can’t wait to see you soon!

Love, and Virtual Hugs!!

What’s new in Drama Class?

Kindergarteners are getting on stage and introducing themselves, reviewing rhyming, doing several different dances, and learning to do sign language to “Love in Any Language”.

1st Graders are rhyming too!!  They are also learning to do the “Locomotion Dance” along with several other dances, and introducing themselves then telling something about themselves on stage.( a great confidence builder)

2nd Graders are doing “Readers’ Theatre” and getting to use an echo phone to tell something about themselves.  They are using speaking and listening standards in their reactions to stories.

3rd Grade is also doing “Readers’ Theater”.  Some have begun to write their own plays!!!  They are very anxious to make puppets!!

4th Graders are writing plays, commercials and using their imagination to act!!

5th Grade is also writing and making commercials using a green screen!!  They use their imagination to show actions too!!

Everyone can “Be Fearless”!!  In front or behind the camera!!!!!
