Materials for Activity
Preparation for Activity
- Read the story a few times.
- Consider telling the story rather than reading it. Practice telling it aloud. Try adopting different voices for Mussa and Nagib.
- If you have not yet added the sand to the story theater, do it now. You will need enough sand to form the banks of the river so that it is thick enough to write "Nagib" in and have the letters show.
Description of Activity
Start telling the story with the figures representing Mussa and Nagib in your hand. As you tell the story, move the figures around to show the action. This way of storytelling can engage listeners in a very tangible way with the story and its message.
Ring the chime (use other sound instrument) to indicate that the story is over.
Note: This story can also be told in a straightforward manner, without the story theater.
