I Woke Up This Morning Lesson

I Woke Up This Morning Lesson

Objective: students imitate the actions and emotions of a character through movement.
Students will practice imitation using the actions of a most familiar character—themselves!   They will use different types of movement to communicate their morning routines.  The actors will also express the four common emotions--happy, sad, mad, scared--throughout the activity (part of the kindergarten objectives).  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Kindergarten Curriculum.
