Reader’s Theater at the Library June Session

New activity at the library to learn and have fun at the same time using dramatic reading of scripts based on children’s stories. Kids will hear the story, do some drama exercises, and practice reading the scripts with intonation and expression.

This activity is for 9 to 12 years-old (4º-6º Primaria) with a high-intermediate or advance English level. It will be held one Friday per month at 18:00, starting on October and finishing in June.

Readers’ Theater will be led by Chloe and Christine, two teachers from the International Institute English program.

The activity forms part of the library services for library members. They will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to biblioteca@iie.es confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Readers Theater session.

Non-members who want to participate have a symbolic associated cost of 3€ per child for each session. The tickets can be obtained at the library check-out desk the same week of the session up until 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity.

June 2013 script around the book:

“Sleeping Ugly” by Jane Yolen & Diane Stanley

Friday, June 14th 2013 at 6 p.m.

sleeping ugly“Plain Jane has a heart of gold — but her face is as homely as her nose is long. Princess Miserella, on the other hand, is a beautiful princess with a heart of stone. In this droll twist on the classic fairytale, the kiss-bestowing prince learns that beauty is indeed only skin deep.”

(“Jane del Montón tiene un corazón de oro pero su cara es feucha y su nariz larga. Por otro lado, la princesa Miserella es una hermosa princesa con un corazón de piedra. En esta divertida vuelta de tuerca del clásico cuento de hadas el príncipe besucón aprende que la belleza está realmente bajo la piel.)
