Nine Short Scenes of Emotion for Elementary Students


These scenes for elementary school-aged children deal with the emotions we feel. Each scene concentrates on a specific emotion: sad, frustrated, frightened, happy, angry, excited, cool and jealous. Designed for students of all learning levels, including those who have not yet learned to read and English-language learners. The dialogue is structured with patterns, repetition and rhythms to allow for easy memorization. A modest royalty is due if performed on stage, but it is royalty free if used in the classroom.
