How do we give students permission to feel? After years of unprecedented stress and anxiety, young people need tools to name, express, and regulate complex emotions and feelings. Actors are experts at using the tools of body, voice, and imagination to walk in a characters’ shoes and express emotions. Infusing literacy standards and texts currently being studied in your classroom, an OTG teaching artist will guide students through building an emotion vocabulary, telling stories to understand emotional responses, and standing in a characters’ shoes to imagine the causes behind feelings and reactions.

Available for bookings September 5, 2023 to April 26, 2024.

Stepping Into the Story gives K-2nd grade students the opportunity to explore their favorite books through their bodies, voices, and imaginations. This field trip engages students in a hands-on, immersive workshop that explores creativity, literacy, and critical thinking as they take the story off the page and onto the stage.

Classrooms will either explore the book Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora (Caldecott Honor and Coretta Scott King Award Winner) or The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. In Thank You, Omu!, Omu (pronounced Ah-moo) shares her delicious thick red stew with everyone in the neighborhood. After Omu gives away the stew to her grateful neighbors, they repay her generosity with food and gifts of their own. In The Rainbow Fish, a beautiful, but lonely fish learns to overcome his pride by sharing his glitter scales with other sea creatures. Students will explore themes of sharing, generosity, community, and culture as they step into Omu’s or Rainbow Fish’s stories.
