Reader’s Theater at the Library November Session

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 September and finishing in June.

Readers’ Theater will be led by Carrie and Trisha, also known as storytellers from the International Institute Library Storytelling Mornings.

Now in collaboration with American Space Madrid it’s a free activity. Library members gain privileged access.

Registration can be done at the IIE website (filling the activity form from the Agenda).

November 2014 script around the book:

“Gretchen Groundhog, It’s Your Day!” by Abby Levine

Friday, November 28th 2014 at 18h.

“Townspeople, an elegant groundhog, and a charming burrow all show up for Groundhog Day in this simple sweet story about old — and new — traditions. Poor Gretchen Groundhog is too shy to come out of her hole on February 2, but her great-uncle Gus, too old for the job, offers her plenty of encouragement.”

(La gente del pueblo, una elegante marmota y una madriguera encantadora…todos aparecen el día de la marmota en esta sencilla dulce historia acerca de viejas y nuevas tradiciones. La pobre Gretchen marmota es demasiado tímida para salir de su agujero el 2 de febrero, pero su tío abuelo Gus, demasiado viejo para el trabajo, le ofrece mucho ánimo.)
