Yesterday, the morning class was invited to attend a performance of the Malawian folktale, The Singing Chameleon.  The performance was put on by an undergraduate music and movement class.  The afternoon class then watched the performance on our SMART Board during class time.   

This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to see the possibilities of story acting - something we have been working on over the year.  Our story acting is very basic (the children acting out the characters in their peers' told stories); whereas in The Singing Chameleon the students had created costumes, a set, and used instruments for both sound effects and to accompany the song within the folktale.
