Scripts, Songs, and Strips
Your drama coach applauds your efforts! "Great work, everyone!" he says. "However, we need to add some more life to this short play so that the kids who will watch us will really be entertained and will learn a lot about nouns too!"
"What about the real backdrops and props?" you ask. The coach replies, "Don't worry. The students in the Artists for Drama Club will take care of those things."
Everyone smiles. One of your clubmates quips, "They will surely do a good job! They are so talented!"
The coach nods his head in agreement. Then he adds, "But right now, we have to add some songs to our script, as well as strips of paper as labels for the different characters, settings, and things."
You all get to work immediately, excited to come up with a wonderful play. Here are the new tasks:
1. Choose a song about nouns and practice singing it. Then decide in which part of the script the song can be inserted.
2. Together with your group, create a song you can use at the end of the play for the finale. Underline all the nouns used.
3. Cut out strips of colored paper and use black pentel pen to write labels for the characters and settings that show proper and common nouns (e.g. Ria (proper)- sister (common), Timmy (proper)- dog (common), Willow National Park (proper)- park (common), GreenWoods Elementary School (proper)- school (common)). Then do the same for the props to be used, but instead show singular and plural nouns (e.g. tree (singular)- trees (plural), bicycle (singular)- bicycles (plural), truck (singular)- trucks (plural)).
