Listen to the Animals
Submitted by: Sara Lindsey
The students are asked to listen very carefully to a story. Tell them that AFTER you read it, you will select one person to act out the part of the animal you will read about. The student must perform all the actions in order.
Here is a sample paragraph:
The rhinoceros snorted loudly and pawed the ground with his right front foot. He stared at the intruder, then ducked his head and charged! He galloped at speed toward his opponent, forcing him to flee. The rhinoceros slowed down and stood still, his ears flickering and his tail swishing.
You could get the students to write some paragraphs. Better still, arrange with another class to write paragraphs and swap them.
