Social behaviourImprovisation

10 minutes



The aim of this exercise is to improve

  • spontaneity

  • creativity

  • interpretation

The children learn to find their way spontaneously in a situation, to speak freely. At the same time, they learn the importance of gestures, which can give extra weight to words and underline them.


  1. One child takes on the role of the speaking reporter and reports on a result.

  2. At the same time, this report is "translated" by another child into a sign language they have found themselves.

In order to make it easier for the interpreters and to make the exercise entertaining, you should try to narrate an event that is as action-packed as possible and that can be represented well with signs.
