Creative Drama in the Classroom for Early Grades

Creative Drama in the Early Grades will be a combination of lecture, demonstration, and participation.  Activities will include incorporating drama into the curriculum (storybuilding/sequence/socials/math and science), as well as for developing self-esteem and confidencce.  Also, just for fun for that extra time in your classroom!

No written materials will be sent out ahead of time; however, a detailed outline will be included in the workshop.  The intention is to get "your juices flowing" with immediate activities to use, as well as a progressive plan reinforcing your lessons and taking them to a further level.
