At our school we have club days after school once a month for any student that wants to participate. I helped with the drama club.
The kids loved it. We started out simple... Some of the activities we did were:
- Giving each student an emotion to act out
- In groups of 4-5, give each student a random prop and let them use it in a creative way, act it out in front of the students and they had to guess what they were doing. The kids got really creative with this... it was really fun.
- In groups of 4-5, the kids were given a short skit to practice and act out. We had one adult per group to help out.
Let's see... some of the other clubs were:
Helping Hands Club
(they did small service projects... wrote letters to troops, decorated and filled welcome to school kits for the office to give to new students during the year, made cat nip toys for the local humane society, etc.)
Sign Language Club
Girls on the Run
This was a great club for our girls http://www.girlsontherun.org/default.html
