How do i look like?

Instructions:

Children should describe themselves one by one: how their face, hair, ears, nose are. We can turn it around so that others have to describe them. Focus on grammar and the adjectives especially.

Make a self-prtrait

Instructions:

Once we finished the discussion everyone should create a self-portrait with the help of a small mirror.

Pro tip: The adult should help them individually so that they can really capture their essence: face shapes, hair or facial expressions, however they should only help if the child has hit an obstacle, or a part of the face is missing. Should this happen just ask them to check again whether they have everything they need or just make a small comment like: you don’t have anything to hear/see/smell with.

Family theatre
