This week was full of pretending, creativity and performing!
With all the nice weather, we went to the park and played basketball on the patio this week!
During indoor time this week we read books, played cards, made necklaces and played with magnetic tiles.
This week we practiced improv games. They were so silly and fun! We started with "three words" where a counselor would write three words on the board and each pair would have one minute to tell a story using those words. The next game was "talk show host". One student was the host and the other one is the expert. Another student picks a category and the host interviews the expert on their subject. It was fun listening to the different experts talk about different things. Lastly, we played "gibberish conversation" where two students have a conversation with each other in gibberish (or words that don't make sense). They each have a translator that translates their gibberish for them.
During club day on Wednesday, we split into a crowd favorite *soccer club* and a new club *drama club*. The students read old plays from Shakespeare, stories from ancient Egypt and Greek mythology. After practicing narration, character story lines and dialogue, each group was able to create their own play. They came up with their characters, the events, the dialogue, the narration (narrated by 2 counselors), and their stage placements. They all turned out great! They were so creative and fun, and we had fun watching the plays after they were done. Check them out below!

On Friday, we put on our silly drama hats and created commercials for a made up product we wanted to sell. Each group had time to come up with the product, practice their pitch and then perform it in front of the group. Check out our silly infomercials below.
