What if you found yourself in a whole new world? Let your imagination run free in this scene book, jam-packed with cavemen, gods and goddesses, magic, dragons, time machines, grouchy old ladies, and more! My Second Scene Book is the most challenging in this series and a culmination of all the skills learned in the previous volumes. The book begins with short Skits for Starters, progresses to Classic Tales with a Twist (traditional fairy tales surprisingly reinvented) and Brand-New Tales, and ends with challenging Advanced Adventures for older students.
This book has several unique features:
- Individual scenes can be linked to create full plays.
- Students decide how stories end in Pick-an-Adventure Plays.
- Each scene is followed by critical discussion questions.
ABOUT THE SERIES
My First Acting Series introduces children, ages 5 to 9, to the basic elements of acting, directing, and producing a live theatrical performance and, in so doing, teaches kids how to think critically, solve problems, and work cooperatively with their peers.
This groundbreaking new series is for truly beginning actors, designed to incorporate theater and its benefits into children's lives at a young age by giving teachers and parents an accessible and applicable series with which to supplement their children's reading or social studies curriculum in a fun and interactive way.
Each book builds on the one before it, so skills grow as students grow. A better alternative to Reader's Theater, My First Acting Series is written by professional playwrights, and sufficiently engages children, encourages them to cooperate, and develops their creative expression.
Within this series, the Latino/English Collection is designed to support K-3 classes that include students whose first language, or language most frequently spoken at home, is Spanish. M. Ramirez has written accessible material that weaves commonly used Latino words and idioms into essentially English material. This Latino flavor breaks down language barriers and allows Latino kids to focus on the work at hand -- learning to act -- while progressing in sync with schoolmates who are more comfortable with commonly available dramatic material.
My First Acting Series contains two collections for K-3 students. The Latino/English Collection by M. Ramirez, and the Standard/English collection by Kristen Dabrowski each include three monologue books, two scene study books, a technique book and a teacher's guide. The acting technique book includes games, exercises, and acting technique lessons; the teachers guide is complete with readymade lesson plans and suggestions on how to incorporate the material into existing curriculum.

Of My First Monologue Book ....Gr 2-6 While there are other monologue titles for elementary children...the selections in My First Monologue Book are much shorter and easier to memorize or analyze. ----School Library Journal
Of My First Monologue Book ...Monologue books for older students saturate the market, but Dabrowski offers 100 short, children-driven monologues that encompass a child's known universe (organized into games, families, food, friends, wishes). Each monologue "sounds" like a child speaks (short simple sentences with an easy vocabulary), and the students' limited life experience will not prohibit them from understanding each monologue. ----Midwest
