Mom Figures It Out Lesson: Communicating with Movement

Objective: students demonstrate locomotor and non-locomotor movement, and discuss how the five senses assist in making inferences.

With a new red ball, Jules can’t wait to go out and play.  How does mom figure out that it rained and Jules got caught in the downpour?  Students have an opportunity to speak dialogue with you as the mom and discuss how mom used her five senses to infer what happened.   The actors use different types of movement to communicate character actions and play out the story as you tell it (part of the first grade objectives).  This lesson is written for the original story Mom Figures It Out by Karen Erickson: download for use with this lesson.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the First Grade Curriculum.
