Drama Circle Props, Classroom Role-Play Ideas and a Freebie!


Drama activities are fun! I try to incorporate drama into my teaching as much as possible. Many of my students get restless and would jump at the chance to get up and move! The process is all about expressing ideas using their bodies, their facial expressions, their voices, and maybe a few props. I have a large plastic bag of props I have gathered over the years. I call it my bag of tricks. It has odds and ends like hats, scarves, sticks, beach gear, an umbrella, masks, etc. We do a lot of improvising. 

Drama circles require space, so it's best to do them outdoors.

Jennifer from Runde's Room has the best collection of drama circles ever. Check out her free Fairy Tales Drama Circle activity cards.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
