(Put them at the front of the class, ask for a big round of applause and the actors can bow pretending to be artists)
  • 7. TIPS AND TRICKS - Remember that “We learn while we use and we use while we learn”. Give them a lot of practice, include the story in your daily routine, explain it “with them”, not “to them”. - Practice the story first with flashcards. - Then, when they have learnt it, let them act it out. Act it out just once a day, if not they might get bored. - The class delegate can choose who he wants to be and can choose the rest of the characters. - Make them switch roles, so all of them will learn all the play. - After all this practice, they are ready to tell the story, let them explain the story to their younger peers, go to other classes. - They can create a comic with the story, they can draw the background and place the reindeer pictures in front. - Depending on the group, they might like the idea of dressing up as reindeers, you can let them create their costumes or you can use some ideas that I have found here: http://mylittle3andme.co.uk/childrens-christmas-craft-reindeerantlers/
