Body Snatcher was our first Unthinkable of the year. His super power is to take a person's body out of the group. He is sneaky as they all are and can snatch our body by turning it away from the group , the teacher , look away from the speaker or sometimes walk away from what we were even doing. Have you ever walked into a room and don't remember why?
Well we worked on one strategy that works but requires a great deal of practice and body awareness. Whole Body Listening!
We completed a few activities that included role playing what was and what was not whole body listening and body snatcher taking our bodies from the group. Th children were then asked to make a whole body listening with clay. They then took pictures and learned a new app for some of them called Skitch. This app allows the user to annotate on a picture or PDF. So, in this case the pictures of our clay whole body listeners. Once they made their skitch they were asked to make a simple video explaining what whole body listening was. Enjoy.
