Drama Resources

  I have always thought that drama is quite important, even for our everyday  classes and there is no doubt that many of those  activities can be useful for the class of english.

drama resource     In the  page  of you will find Drama Games for : concentration, breaking the ice, physical warm-ups, improvisation, group dynamics and encouraging creativity.

These activities are drawn from a wide range of sources, including traditional games, as well as exercises developed by directors, actors and teachers.

Don’t forget  tongue twisters soooo important for building language!


Drama games for kids

drama games for kids

     In the  page  of “”  you will find a comprehensive resource of drama games for kids and teaching drama tips.

There are different types of activities: warm up activities, ensemble building,  break out of shell, focus, creativity and improv

I also like to start or include in many of my classes with a tongue twister

Very useful even for your daily classes. I use them from time to time. Some of my favourites – above all for special days- with lots of fun are: 



I have changed the game a little bit.  I choose a pair  of students. One asks the questions and the other one .no matter the question,  must keep a straight face and answer “sausage”.

How many questions are they going to do without smiling or laughing? In that moment I change the pair of students.

I leave here some questionssausages questions

but depending on the age of your students and their english confident they can write or ask their own questions

A: What’s that hanging from your ear?
B: Sausage
A: What’s your sister’s name?
B: Sausage
A: How old are you?
B: Sausage.



  • One  student leaves the room while the others stand in circle and choose a secret leader.

  • The leader will start with a repetitive motion that the others follow and the leader will slowly change the motion while the others follow without missing a beat.

  • The student from outside will come back in and try to figure out who the leader is.

  • GREAT!!!!!



  • A variation of “the mirror” 

  • To help children to break out of shell.
