Objective: students define drama and practice skills (concentration, imagination, transformation, imitation – C.I.T.I.) needed for a drama.

Students have fun with concentration and imagination exercises, both of which are important for integrated drama work. This is a great beginning of the year lesson for second grade students with prior drama experience.* In this lesson, you will find The Freeze (which sets a classroom management signal), Word Rhythm Dance, and Peanut Butter & Jelly activities recommended as part of the instruction – download them to complete the materials. Students gain experience in naming the four fine arts and demonstrating how C.I.T.I. (concentration, imagination, transformation, imitation) are used in drama (part of the second grade objectives). This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Second Grade Curriculum.

*For classes without experience, we suggest you start with the Introductory Lessons.

Second Grade Drama Journal: Three Drama Skill Words

To maximize student achievement, download this drama journal for students to use as reflection or formative assessment. For each lesson in the curriculum, we have created a corresponding journal page for your students. A drama journal allows participants to reflect on their learning and artistic growth (metacognition). It also allows you, the teacher, to see how students are using the drama vocabulary, thinking about big ideas, and perceiving their own strengths and weaknesses. If you use the journal for assessment and would like more assessment tools, visit our Second Grade Curriculum
