Drama Through the Rec Center

Every quarter the city mails a Recreation Guide.  I scoured it looking for activities that I thought may help us achieve our homeschooling goals.  CJ has struggled with shutting down physically and mentally when faced with an unfamiliar situation.  I thought that the local drama class may help him.  We toured the library where it was to take place a week before class started.  I find it's always helpful to go "explore" a new place before being required to go there for an activity.  The theme for the drama class was "Dr. Seuss".  Every day they would read a new story and act it out.  At the end the parents would return and they'd put on their dramatic telling of the book they'd just practiced.  It turned out great and was an interesting experience to see CJ tap into some facial expressions and character traits.
