Theatre Game of the Week #1811-2-13

In honor of CNY we will play Fables. Fables is a great game when you're teaching kids about mythology or about traditional stories. It can also be used in a classroom with Aesop's to teach things about moral/theme and manners. What you do is you read a fable as a class together. Then you use this fable as a platform to create a drama over the class period. Because it's CNY, we'll use the story of the Chinese Zodiac for the basis of this outline.

Theatre Game of the Week #1415-1-13

There are typically three types of learners in a classroom. Audio, Visual and Tactile. The perfect theatre game will hit all three at once. This is one of my favorite ones to play. It's called Gamer. It's also a great game for Hong Kong kids as they are normally computer game obsessed. Having the game contain something they enjoy is the key to hooking them into having fun and learning at the same time.

Sometimes when you're a teacher you just need the kids to be quiet for 10 minutes. The act of focusing can be challenging for some groups. Whether it be students with ADHD, obsessive texting students or kids that just chatter on like monkeys at the zoo you need to have a couple games in your back pocket that can be used to refocus a group's energy.
