In our classroom, K-3 grade students will focus on eight acting elements: accuracy, projection & enunciation, voice, facial expression, gestures & movement, clarity, costumes & props, and cooperation. These skills will be individually and explicitly taught and practiced through a variety of games and activities. Students will demonstrate their understanding of each element through short monologue and scene performances.
4-5 grade students will build upon what they've learned in K-3 by learning about different jobs in the theatre. Students will take on different "jobs" for an in class performance.
All students K-5 will use these skills in our all school musical in the spring.
