Radio Plays

These are 2-page sketches designed to be recorded on tape/dictaphone. The children make the sound effects themselves. Playing them back becomes a wonderful listening excercise in itself. I have never seen my children listen so intently to a listening! These sketches could also be performed in front of an audience. 

Listen to an example:
