Mr. Dove

As we venture into unknown territory without time together I wanted to share some sites that would allow you have drama (the positive, fun kind..hehe) in your day.  Check out the links at the bottom of this page.  If you practice and perform any of the activities, feel free to share them with me via email (doveax@pwcs.edu).  I might even share some!  Until our next time, have fun, read, smile, and find ways to creatively express yourself every day!!!



A theme that will be running through the class this year is TEAM.  Drama has always focused on group/teamwork activities.  This year we are really going to put emphasis on how to interact with each other and how we can constantly be using the Golden Rule.

This year we will also have a Drama Motto that we will share each time we meet.  It is below:

Drama Motto


Drama is an exciting ENCORE class at T. Clay Wood Elementary School!  Each year I am amazed to see the growth in all the students during from class not only as actors and public speakers but also as people!

The main goals of the class are to help increase students' fluency (ability to read text aloud) and to give student confidence to speak in front of a group of people.  Students reach these goals by reading many forms of written text, with a major focus on plays, playing games, and sharing their own written creations.  

Some of the class activities include:

KINDERGARTEN – an exciting introduction to the alphabet using a class poem, various games where student create the words, poetry reading, and an introduction to plays

1ST GRADE – a focus on learning how to confidently and fluently read various texts by reading a poems and plays about economics, life cycles, and seasonal changes *

2nd GRADEa focus on fluently reading and adding actions to various texts including poems, plays, and monologues *

3rd GRADE – continuing to read various texts with a focus on independent presentations; all classes also perform a grade level play about ancient civilizations at the end of the year for the 2nd graders*

4th GRADE – independently organizing and performing various texts for their classmates; all students will write and perform a group play*

5th GRADE – independently organizing, directing, and performing various texts for their classmates; all students will write and perform a class play*

*ALL STUDENTS in grades 1st-5th will write and perform a speech

The class will also include a teamwork component that will allow students to build skills to better work with others in their school and community.

The Drama Web page will include links to various Web sites as well as copies of teacher-created plays that students use in the classroom.

T. Clay Wood also has a Drama Club for 4th and 5th graders. The club has a Fall and Spring session.  Each will culminate with a production for the parents.   More information about the club can be found on the Drama Club Tab on the left side of this page.

I am also the acting patrol sponsor.  Patrols are 5th grade students who assist teachers and bus drivers in making the school a safe place.  More information about patrols can be found on the Patrol Tab under Support.

I look forward to an exciting year at T. Clay Wood Elementary School as we have fun performing and creating throughout the year!
