Expand Pre-K Oral Language with Theater Techniques!
How can making dramatic choices with voice, body, and imagination broaden oral language skills for children? Children develop their language skills through practice, especially through practice with adults who give them something fun and concrete to talk about!
This site is a collaboration between teachers and artists, resulting in original video modeling of dramatic arts techniques integrated with research-based oral language instruction. These videos guide you step-by-step to plan fun engaging routines for daily standards-aligned learning.
Exploring these interactive tutorials you will grow to love puppets Wolf and Bear, who volunteered to play the parts of our students after 2020-21 pandemic response restrictions prevented on-site teaching artist visits in Vermont preschool classrooms.
