I’ve shared before about my love of musicals. I love the music, the dancing. Yes, the acting can be a little cheesy and even far fetched sometimes, but I love them. I will watch them over and over. The songs get stuck in my head. And now I have passed the same love of musicals on to my kids.
All of them, even my toddlers, love music. At any given time you could walk by and hear music coming from somewhere. My oldest even has a bluetooth speaker to listen to spotify while he’s outside. He clips it to his bike where the water bottle is supposed to go and he rides around listening to music. It’s great.
As for musicals, some of their recent favorites include The Greatest Showman, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, High School Musical (all of them), and Annie (original and remake). My kids would listen to the songs from these on repeat if I let them.
Of course, as a lover of musicals I have been working to introduce them to the classics too. One of my favorites being Oklahoma! Being born and raised in Oklahoma, maybe I’m a little partial, but it was also one of the first ones I saw as a girl. So maybe a little nostalgia plays a part in my decision. Nevertheless, I have a definite fondness for Oklahoma!, which of course means a movie study was needed!
Not everyone loves discussion questions. My kids much prefer to do them orally and as a group rather than on paper. Either way, at least it gets them talking about the musical. These types of questions often open up some amazing and wonderful conversations with my kids, which I treasure because I know they will be gone too soon!
ABOUT THE STATE
What do your kids know about the state of Oklahoma? This page gives a brief history of the state as well as some basic information. Students will learn about the climate, famous people who were born in Oklahoma, fun facts about the state, and much more!
Now that they know about the state, students can take a quick pop quiz. This can be a fun way to see what they remember from the previous page, but you can also use it as a simple history quiz.
Describing characters is one of my favorite parts of any report. Whether its a book or movie, I find studying characters so fascinating. Once you study them, it brings so much more meaning to their lines, their behavior and it really makes the story come to life.
