Accessible and fun to do!

I did this with my 4th graders. They loved making the different costumes and the giant rock (paper-mache!) The songs are cute and easy to learn and gives every kid a chance to shine. The only song that is a little tricky is the Monkey's "What's that Smell?" but we changed it to have more of a tune. We also added some closing dialogue about Anansi *maybe* learning a lesson. It was a huge success.

Anansi and the Moss Covered Rocck

This play is perfect for First Graders. They love the story and sing the songs constantly. The moral is clear to both students and parents. I appreciate that the story is written so that the language can be adapted for even English Language learners can paticipate

Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock

Such a great play to do with my 3rd graders after our study of folktales. They loved learning all of the elements of drama and turning our classroom into a jungle for the production was an added bonus. We had a parent volunteer to make our simple costumes (headbands with ears) and invited other classes to come be our audience the last week of school. A great culmination to our year of learning together.

Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock-- Great show!

The music is very catchy and easy to teach & learn. The CD is great. I've used it with K-3 and it's ideal for second but works well for every grade level.

I love your materials.

(See my review of Mother Goose's Character camp.)

Very cute story. I think our audience will really enjoy it. Our performance is at the end of February. I've found that our audience does not like the whole script sung, so we are only singing

It's So Hot and all the Down, Down, Down songs as characters "pass out." We will also Tango with A Mango, just to be dancing fools.

I've done Grammar Island, Grammar under the Big Top, Great Americans,Character Matters I,II, Mastering Math, Emperor's New Clothes,Test Taking Strategies,US Geography, and my very favorite The American Revolution. We've done some cool dancing and singing, but I would like more spoken parts for what I do with the scripts.

Thanks for clever materials that are entertaining and educational.
