Goals

  • Create and present a play.

Activities

Options for creating and presenting a play:

  • Groups choose any fairy tale they want.
    Let groups decide what story they want to present and let them present it how they want.
    This works well when you have many classes left for practice and you have the chance to present the stories in front of 1st and/or 2nd graders.
  • Groups divide a single fairy tale between them.
    The class (or the teacher) decides on a single story and the class divides the story between them, each group presenting a portion.
  • Groups present a customized portion of a Momotaro
    For example, where Momotaro meets his gang, (Hi, friends! 2, page 32-33), students in groups change the characters and the gift and the goal.
    "Hello Momotaro Spiderman. What's this? It's kibidango money. Let's go to Onigashima the Zoo."
    This method works well in big school with large class sizes and busy teachers. Students can get very creative and have a lot of laughs.

The first two options above will take a lot of monitoring and guidance from the ALT and HRT. If you can make a worksheet to help students plan action and dialogue, it'll help a lot. The third option is the easiest to implement and because it has the most structured dialogue it's easier for all students to do more speaking.
