DRUM DOGS graphic illustrations. Short stories as examples that illustrate how DRUM DOG POWERS solve problems.
(The Artist reads them aloud.)
Writing paper and pens or pencils for the students.
Please arrange the space so that four student teams can sit together to create and write their stories.
I CAN: Imagine and write stories; I CAN collaborate as a team member and accept democratic decisions; I CAN Speak confidently; I CAN repeat spoken, phonetic patterns
and duplicate them to create joyous music.
Kids create short stories in which a DRUM DOG's POWER (assistance; search and rescue; herding; physical strength) solves an imagined problem. They acquire public speaking skills to read their stories aloud. They learn phonetic skills to create DRUM DOG RHYTHMS that they play on hand drums.
DRUM DOGS welcomes caregivers and adult family members to participate. To insure having enough drums, Bob requires a count for the attendance.
