A program for primary schools that integrates SEL with drama, music and child-led discovery.
Designed in consultation with a performing arts teacher, The SELf EXPRESS program will cover your SEL, Critical and Creative Thinking and Drama and Music curriculum.
The program starts with a live theatre experience suitable for K - 6 students that features relatable, diverse characters facing challenges familiar to children.
After watching the musical, the children will feel a natural connection with the Musical Sprouts characters and a familiarity with the concepts they'll be exploring. Warmed up and ready to learn.
Led by the Musical Sprouts characters live or via short videos, the students participate in activities based on neuroscience research that engage their whole bodies in the learning.
Within the show there are 4 props that are popular tools in psychodrama to assist with behavioural management. We will show you how to use them so you can implement creativity into your teaching with confidence.
