This BLOG is the product of the "LET'S LEARN BY PLAYING" (LLP) project which is developing as a Grundtvig European Project since September 2008 by the patners of six institutions belonging to six different countries. The project started at a first contact seminar held in Riga (Latvia).

The main objective of the partnership is create a HANDBOOK or TEACHER MANUAL with drama activities and interactive games.

Here you have the results of our work, the activities, games, and new approaches into Foreign languages teaching-learning.

We hope these materials are useful for you and we encourage you to put some of the activities into practice with your students and feel free to send us your feed-back and suggestions.

We separate the team into two sub-groups, each one guided by an enlivener. We sit down formulating a circle. On a pen board we write approximately 5-6 words or phrases which are related to the topic we had already been associated with and they will work as a fuse for our fairy tale. The enlivener begins the fairytale by holding a stick that passes from one to another, throughout the members of the circle. Whoever holds the stick, tells the first thing (idea) that comes up in his/her mind, so as to go on the fairytale. In the continuation we can rehearse it from the beginning completed and then record it. We must try to send as clear as possible messages through the tale.
Then the group discusses how can the tale be dramatized. We select the heroes, hand out the roles, find the appropriate clothes and components that will help us support our roles and maybe choose the music and rehearse. The dramatization could be done naturally and without the use of a shadow, though it is something totally original and spectacular, with the use of a sheet and light.
We have already have a white sheet set up on a wooden stand. Behind of that we've placed a projector. We tell the kids ot be careful so as to choose the appropriate faces to be behind that piece of cloth in every scene, in order to create more visible and discernable shadows. It would be advisable to rehearse behind the sheet a few times before the final presentation, for better results.
