Drama Ideas for Older Homeschoolers

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

Teaching Drama is always a fun subject for the homeschool crowd. Not only do students learn to interact better with one another, they also become more comfortable with speaking in front of a group. Here are some basic games and activities you can use to teach Drama to your homeschooler. This elective makes an excellent idea for a co-op class, and you can even create a class for your high school student to satisfy a performing arts credit.

Express Yourself- Learning to use expressions in a dramatic way is essential to dramatic instruction. Here are some expressions for your homeschooler to work on:

happiness
elation
joy
sadness
worry
extreme fear
surprise
hurt
weariness

Play a Game- Try doing "Mirrors" or pantomimes with your homeschoolers. Here are some fun ideas for Mirrors or pantomimes:

Brush or comb your hair
Climb a ladder
Walk a tightrope
Play Hot Potato
Dance
Brush your teeth
Playing a game of baseball
Play a game of basketball
Sew your finger together
Cook a spaghetti dinner
Bake a cake
Searching for water in the desert
Ski down a mountain
Learn to swim
Do laundry (fold it and put it away too!)
Wash your hair

Act it out- Have a mini play, full blown production or series of skits. Some great resources for ideas are:
The Skit Book: 101 Skits from Kids by Margaret Read MacDonald, The Humongous Book of Bible Skits for Children's Ministry by Group Publishing, 12 Fabulously Funny Folktale Plays by Justin McCory Martin, 12 Fabulously Funny Fairy Tale Plays: Humorous Takes on Favorite Tales That Boost Reading Skills, Build Fluency & Keep Your Class Chuckling With Lots of Read-Aloud Fun! by Justin Mccory Martin, 12 Fabulously Funny Fairy Tale Plays: Humorous Takes on Favorite Tales That Boost Reading Skills, Build Fluency & Keep Your Class Chuckling With Lots of Read-Aloud Fun! byJustin Mccory Martin, Cinderella Outgrows the Glass Slipper and Other Zany Fractured Fairy Tale Plays: 5 Funny Plays with Related Writing Activities and Graphic Organizers by Joan Wolf, Plays for Children - Part One - Fifteen One Act Plays by Shamrock Eden Publishing, 25 Just-Right Plays For Emergent Readers(Grades K-1)by Carol Pugliano-Martin and On Stage: Theater Games and Activities for Kids by Lisa Bany-Winters.
