Reader’s Theater at the Library April 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 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.

“Too Much Noise” by Ann McGovern & Simms Taback

Friday, April 19th 2013.

TooMuchNoise-CoverPeter complains his house is too noisy so the wise man advises him to obtain some rather unusual house guests.  Too Much Noise makes a great classroom play. There are so many animals in the story and they make so many animal noises that everyone can have a part in the play

(Pedro se queja de que su casa es muy ruidosa y para solucionarlo un sabio le recomienda que tenga en casa unos invitados bastante inusuales. Esta historia es genial para hacerse como una obra en clase. Hay tantos animales en ella y hacen tantos sonidas que todos pueden tener su papel en la representación.)

“Too much noise” by Ann McGovern & illustrated by Simms Taback

“Peter goes off to the village wise man to find out what he could do about his noisy house. It seemed like a simple enough problem at the beginning, but more and more complications set in–in the forms of a donkey, a sheep, and a cow, to name a few, until it looked as though an entire farm had come to life right there in Peter’s house. But with the proper, if overwhelming, application of true folk wisdom, the trouble was ended. Peter’s house was finally quiet. Or was it?”
