Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Part One: Drama Games. There are nine different categories in this section. . Each category, for example warm-up games, listening games, states the main benefit of the games it features. However some of the games may have more than one benefit. For example, `Fruit Basket is listed as a warm up game but other benefits of this game are listening and observation. The games are clearly set out and the appropriate age group and minimum amount of children needed to participate are listed for each one. The other benefits of playing the game are also stated and detailed instructions are provided, with suggested variations for some of the games.
Warm-Up Games These games can be used at the beginning of any drama lesson. They help limber the children up and lead them into the next part of the lesson. They are fun and enjoyable. If you are short on time the children can also do them by themselves, in separate groups.

From the Back Cover

`Drama Start' is a collection of drama activities, including games, role playing ideas, action poems, plays and monologues, suitable for children between the ages of three and eight. It can be used in Early Years' settings
or in primary schools, up to and including second class. This book is also suitable for people working with children in any setting where drama is used, such as community groups, out of school care facilities, therapeutic
group work and so on.

The book is accessible and easy to follow. It is divided into three parts:
Part 1 - Drama Games
Part 2 - Plays
Part 3 - Monologues

Format: Paperback
Lots of great ideas for warm-up games and co-operative games aswell as games to help children with listening, concentration and communication. As a Play Therapist I found lovely ideas for movement games and as an educator I found the role plays, action poems and children's plays very helpful. The instructions on how to play the games were simple and precise, giving an idea of the age each game was suitable for and the benefits of the games. Highly recommend this book to anyone working with young children as well as parents looking for some new ideas for games.

I found this book very useful. It was very simple to follow. The drama activities were very imaginative and creative and the students in my class enjoyed them very much. The plays were also simple but effective. Overall a very handy resource

If you are looking for a fun book with drama activities for children, this would be it! I decided to download this for my daughter who loves drama and theatre. She wants to try out for her school play, so I figured that this would be a great book for her to learn more about techniques. There are a ton of games in here and role playing ideas. I don't know much about drama, so having this book really helped me to come up with ideas on what to start with when teaching her drama. She seemed to enjoy the fun activities and we had fun working through them together. I would recommend this one!

So far I have found this book full of great, easy to read ideas. You don't need to be a drama teacher to put it to good use and my class of 3 year olds currently love the music based activities.

I absolutely loved this book. As a busy preschool teacher im often stuck for ideas and this book is a wonderful asset to any classroom. Its great for ideas for fun games for circle time, for drama activities and for rainy days. The kids love all the games( magic rocks,musical hugs,jumping beans) are firm favourites. It also has some fantastic ideas for short plays for children. I would highly recommend this book.

I would recommend this book highly to any teacher. I love the material itself, it is creative and fun and allows children to learn the principals of drama in a fun way. The real value of this and Julie Meighan`s other wonderful books though is the activities help build a co-operative and cohesive group with which to work.

The book arrived promptly and has lots of good ideas to stimulate children's drama skills. I bought this with the book for the 9 - 12 age group as I am working with 7-9 year olds and I am finding it very useful to dip in to both.

Some brillant games for all ages and some can easily be adapted to be made more exciting still! The children in my drama club love these games and warm ups. The plays also look good and quite funny!
