1. What a GREAT ACTIVITY for kinetic learners. I always wished I had more stuff for those kids at the high school level when I was teaching.

2. My sister's favorite role in high school drama required her to pantomime a dying butterfly. But she's weird. :)

3. I'm sorry about your bump in the road you posted about yesterday. I'm a little late in the game today, which is why I'm posting on this. I hope things get back to normal quickly!


Great idea! We do some sign language in our studies, we should do more!


This is great...and I have some kids that I might try this with...not sure my oldER students would like it too much, but...they did "body letters" and spelled words for the others to read so...who knows...this might work for them too!!


Sounds really cool. I would have loved to do this when my girls were smaller. Thanks for Sharing. :)
I hope all is well in the Casa De' Juggling.

That does sound like fun. I'm a grown up and I love charades--but no one ever wants to play it.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

You are glass half full, huh?

A post about mime. Like a show about nothing. Excellent.


Hogs and kisses, hogs and kisses....

... I was miming typing my comment, but you needed to be there for the full effect. ;)

Fun activity!


You are going to be so great in the classroom!


Hmmm...that sounds like a fun project to do...hmmm...


That is a great idea! (I'll still comment when there is good news ; )


okay, i cant's even think of a wisecrack because that is really pretty cool.


When I was volunteering in my son's 1st grade class a couple weeks ago, I noticed his teacher was doing a similar exercise with the class. They were having a great time with it. I'll have to revisit.


I can't wait to try it with my kids--thanks for the great idea!

I was late seeing your post yesterday. Wishing you all good luck and hope things get back to normal quickly.


Sounds awesome! I'm ALL into Augmentative and ALTERNATIVE Communication (AAC)! ;)


Had to laugh at the comment about bad luck driving up your stats. I have first hand knowledge that when you post about a bad day - you get some comment love. It is the same way that you get a hug from a slight acquaintance in real life when you have something going on that makes the grapevine.

That is pretty cool alright; I'm imagining even my teenagers might get into it (I do have lots of kinesthetic learners).

Though I would totally have been in on the jokes beforehand. Mason once said he really wanted to be a mime when he grew up; Stu & I nearly wet our pants laughing/crying.
