Drama Circles Guest Post

I'm SO excited to be doing a guest blog post on Laura Candler's Corkboard Connections today.  Laura is a fantastic teacher and author, and is the owner of the Teaching Resources site - a virtual treasure chest for teachers in grades 3-6.  Laura was the very first teacher site I followed on facebook, and I have learned so much from her over the years.


For my guest post, I wrote about my drama circles - go on over and check it out.  For a special treat, I've created a brand new Fairy Tale Drama Circle freebie just for this post - be sure to download it after your visit.  I hope you enjoy!!!  Click on the picture to the right to read all about it!

While you're visiting Corkboard Connections, be sure to check out Laura's Graphic Organizers for Reading and Power Reading Workshop books.  I have both of these resources and love what they have added to my literacy blocks.

Thanks for the opportunity, Laura!

  2. Once again, I am awed by your creativity and out and out greatness! I love these and can't wait to use these during our fairy tale unit.

    (Yes, I left almost this exact comment on TpT, but I thought it deserved to be said twice!)

  6. Jen....I am so excited to see you add more drama circles. I think you should turn them into a book. I started following your blog after I saw your back to school drama circle last year. My students loved doing it on the first day of school. If you are taking requests, I would love a pirate one next!

    1. Thank-you so much, Tina! A pirate theme would be so much fun - my own daughters would LOVE it! I've got a few things on my plate right now, but I'll put it on my ever growing to-do list. Thanks for the ideas ... keep them coming!

    1. Thanks, Julie! Go for it with the neighborhood kids - I made my own daughters try it out before I posted it - they're like my own little focus group. :)

  8. Thank you so much Jen. I have put all the other drama circles on my TPT wish list to be bought a few at a time. You are terrific and so creative. I am going to do the back to school one during the first
    week of school.
