Improv in First Grade

Lotspeich first-graders recently worked on improvisational work at the direction of their teacher Russell White. Working through a number of colorful scene descriptors, the students played the game, “four corners,” in which they pretended to play trombones despite a pesky bird flying into the bell of the instrument, sing in an opera with a horrible case of the hiccups, score a winning touchdown, and win an esteemed science award. White said the exercises are helpful in teaching students the nuances of stage direction and listening as they move through the ranks of Lower School dramatics and theater.
