WHAT MAKES THIS RESOURCE SO DIFFERENT?
Central to this pack is Gary, a mixed up tree frog who, along with his friends, is learning how to manage and understand his own big feelings. As the teacher, you will introduce this imaginary character to your preschoolers along with the help of our original music video, ‘Mixed Up Frog’. Before you know it, you’ll have a whole classroom full of ‘Garys’ who will help the children to learn to recognise and manage their own feelings.
NERVOUS ABOUT DRAMA?
Don’t be - Drama is just another word for play! If you can capture a child’s attention when you sing a nursery rhyme, or can make them laugh by putting on a silly voice when you’re reading a story, you have absolutely nothing to be nervous about!
TRANSFORM HOW YOU SING WITH YOUR PRESCHOOLERS IN JUST FIVE MINUTES!
This free, five minute video shares with you a simple but highly effective technique. Discover how, with very little planning, you can enhance preschool children’s learning whenever you’re singing with them. It’s so simple you’ll be able to try it out in class tomorrow!
Learn how easy it is to create the imaginary world of any nursery rhyme for the children to explore and as they pretend, observe the progression of their Language and Literacy skills and their Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
Even if you consider yourself to be naturally shy or have no drama experience, you’ll find this simple drama approach to singing incredibly easy, after all, drama is just another word for play!
WHO’S THIS RESOURCE FOR?
Anyone working with preschool children.
WHAT MAKES THIS RESOURCE SPECIAL?
Once you learn this technique, you can employ it whenever you like with no need for extra resources - it’s a little bit of Pyjama Drama magic that you can use whenever, wherever! PLUS, as a teacher using our techniques, you can join our online community of like-minded teachers, ‘The Pyjama Drama Learning Academy’ on Facebook, where you can share ideas and meet other teachers who are using imaginative play to unlock potential in their preschoolers.
