Building A Theater Corner To Inspire Creativity

My students need props, hats, and simple costumes to create a Theater Corner.

My Students

Do you remember playing dress-up as a child? It only takes a few items to spark students' imagination as they act, imagine, and grow as creative individuals in the classroom.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds - socially, ethnically, and financially.

Many students have both breakfast and lunch provided by the school. Many are learning English at school while still using a different language at home. All of them benefit from entering a classroom that is a safe place for building relationships and learning.

My Project

I have requested items that will build a Theater Corner in my classroom. These items, (varying from a clip-on bow tie, to a hand puppet, to a construction hat and more...) will inspire my students as they participate in Reader's Theater, write their own stories, and reenact scenes from books we have read as a class. Particularly for English Language Learners, these resources can equip students to feel more comfortable as they read a script or build friendships in the classroom. Theater resources also engage students who learn by doing rather than simply hearing. Theater provides a creative outlet for all students, transporting them from the present to the past, or to the future, or to a place completely imaginary.

Sometimes the smallest items make the biggest difference.

Sadly, many children today are so engrossed in video games and cell phones that they miss the opportunity to play, imagine, and learn. Incorporation of the arts in education results in students that are excited to learn. Students that are excited to learn achieve at a higher level and become lifelong learners.
