Start Each Class with a Fun Warm-Up Game

When our kids wanted to take drama, Laura and I created this course. It is simple enough for any mom to use and much more fun if you get together with a couple of other families so you have a bigger group of kids. We used it in a high school homeschool co-op and everyone had a lot of fun!

Each class starts out with a warm-up. Many of these warm-up games are Improv. There is always so much laughing and silliness during the warm-ups.

We start the year out learning about the stage, how to take stage directions, and who's who in the theater.

Next, we do some fun acting out short skits and use masks to act out fables.

Of course, there has to be a Christmas play and you can choose any one you want to, depending on the abilities of your kids and where you will be performing the play. We performed our Christmas play at church.

We have links to several sites that offer free scripts, including the one where we downloaded ours. We adapted our play a little bit, joining with the Christmas choir who sang between acts.

January and February are spent writing a radio show script and recording it. Of course, first we have to listen to an excellent audio drama so students get an idea of what to create.

The rest of the year is spent working on YouTube videos like a testimony, movie or book trailer, or comedy skit. Your kids probably already have uploaded videos on YouTube so it will be a fun way to end the year.

Throughout the year, you will need to watch clips or videos for various assignments and you will find them all on this page. Just scroll down.

Laura and I had a blast teaching this course and we hope you will have fun, too! After all, who doesn't love the spotlight?

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
