Admit it, school is not the best place for you. But when school activities are packaged in a simple drama, surely it will be much more exciting and fun! Every now and then, there's nothing wrong with inviting your friends to role-play; Have them play the role of students, while you play the role of the class teacher. Want to know how? Read on to learn how to create your own school, start teaching and learning activities, and become a good teacher!
Method 1 of 3: Creating Your Own School
Step 1. Choose the right location for the classroom
If you play this game at home, don't use your bedroom because it's probably too small. Instead, enlist your parents' help in removing some furniture from the living room and turning your living room into a classroom!
- If you have folding chairs, you can arrange them in your new classroom. For the table, you can use other chairs or a simple sitting table.
- Choose your teaching position and spread a large sheet of white paper on the wall; analogize the paper as a blackboard. Instead of chalk, use a marker to write on your blackboard.
Step 2. Also make other rooms that are common in every school
If your parents allow you, you can turn your entire house into a school building for a day. Change the function of the dining room into a BP room or the bedroom into the principal's room. Rooms that can support your game include:
- Principal's office
- Detention/punishment room
Step 3. Gather the necessary school supplies
To make your game feel more real, at least provide some things that are common in class. You can ask your “students” to bring their own school supplies or prepare:
- Pencil, pen or crayon
- Notebook or blank paper
Step 4. Select the level of education
Would you choose to teach the level of education you are currently pursuing? Or do you choose to “downgrade” and teach the material you learned three years ago? Or did you choose to “level up” and teach university education materials? Choose the level of education that is most enjoyable for you and adjust the teaching materials.
Also choose the lesson you will teach! Are you a Math, Science, or English teacher? Choose specific teaching materials and try to arrange simple teaching materials based on those materials
Method 2 of 3: Starting Teaching and Learning Activities
Step 1. Gather students
To be legally a teacher, of course you need to have students to teach, right? Invite your friends or relatives over to your house and ask if they are willing to be your co-star. No one is ready? Don't worry, collect as many dolls as you can find, tidy up their positions, and make them your disciples!
- Ask your friends to sit on the chairs that have been provided. As a teacher, of course you can adjust their sitting position or free them to choose the desired position. You can even make simple signage to place on each table or have them make their own.
- Sit in front of the class and ask your friends to be quiet because class is about to start.
Step 2. Teach concise and simple material
Once you've gathered a few students, start teaching! Write your teaching materials on paper attached to the wall, so they know what they will learn later.
You can also do a variety of fun activities, such as “dissecting” dolls – instead of animals – like you can do in Biology class, and then ask them to explain what they find. This can be a fun learning alternative for you and your friends
Step 3. Have your students take notes
Give each student a piece of paper; they can use the paper to take notes or do assignments. Explain specifically what they need to do with the paper. You can also ask them to read back what they have noted down.
If you're teaching an English class, give them 10 minutes to write down their weekend activities in English. After that, ask them to read their writings in front of the class
Step 4. Ask questions
One of the advantages of being a teacher is that you can appoint anyone to do whatever you want. For example, you can ask a mathematical question and randomly call your friends' names to answer them. You can also ask silly questions like, “Hey Andi, come to the front of the class and explain how fish kiss. Come on, quickly! .
- Turn questions into games. Ask your students, "132 minus 17 equals what?" and ask them to answer as quickly as possible. The fastest answer will get a prize in the form of candy.
- Some teachers often encourage their students to answer questions by inviting them to play bingo. Of course you can also apply this method.
Step 5. Ask your students to answer the questions on your "whiteboard"
In real life, this situation is certainly a scourge for most students. But since this isn't a real school, believe me, it's going to be a lot of fun! Have each student come to the front of the class to answer the question or work on the problem on the board.
Have them do a math problem or draw something silly. Tell them that whoever can draw a brontosaurus properly will get Yupi's candy
Step 6. Have a lunch hour
After studying for a while, ask all students to line up and walk to the “canteen”. If necessary, ask your parents for help pretending to be a canteen employee. Sit down with your students and eat typical school cafeteria foods such as fried rice and milk.
Step 7. Have a break
After lunch, invite everyone to play on the “field” as you often do at school. Who knows, your parents will be willing to take you to the nearest playground during this "break".
Method 3 of 3: Be a Good Teacher
Step 1. Play each role in turn
It's nice to have a superior position as a teacher; but it will be much more fun if you want to share the role with your other friends. After a while, give the role of teacher to your friend and play a new role as student. Trust me, your game will feel more and more fun!
Determine other roles that are common in school. For example, ask some of your friends to act as students, while the rest you can ask to play the principal, class supervisor, BP teacher, and class teacher. Make sure you sample all the roles taking turns with your friends
Step 2. Choose a new name that is identical to the teacher's name in general
You can choose common names such as Bu Ani, Bu Diah, or Pak Eko; but if you want more fun, choose silly names like Bu Tompel or Pak Bulu. Choose any name you want and ask all the students to call you by that name.
Step 3. Dress like a teacher
Usually, the teacher has a distinctive style of dress that you can imitate. Try to wear glasses and neat clothes; pull your pants higher than usual and comb your hair until it's really neat. Also, walk as if you are an old man.
- If your mother has an old dress that you can borrow, try wearing it to emphasize the image of a teacher. If not, try looking for vintage-style clothes at the nearest clothing store.
- Usually, male teachers will wear ties, glasses, and suspenders.
Step 4. Speak like a teacher
Speak in a low voice and show your seriousness when playing the role of a teacher. Don't laugh at your friends' reactions, and don't get caught up in their jokes too often. Be firm and authoritative like a real teacher.
- If you and your friends are taught by the same teacher, try imitating the teacher's attitude and speaking style in front of your friends.
- Try to use more standard and complicated diction, like a teacher in general. For example, you can say, "Today we will study the existence of the earth and everything in it" when entering the Natural Sciences material.
Step 5. Make sure everything is well organized
Make sure you keep all your “teaching supplies” in the teacher's desk drawer or in a small basket in the corner of the classroom; make sure you also label each item so it doesn't get scattered. To make the game feel more convincing, there's nothing wrong with making a simple nameplate for you to put on the teacher's desk.
Or, you can also create the concept of a "messy teacher's desk" if your teacher's desk at school is like that too. This can be a powerful method of making school more enjoyable
Step 6. Don't be too rigid and serious
The game should be interesting and fun! Keep the situation calm and conducive, but don't get angry if your friends make jokes or chat occasionally during class. It's natural for them to do it, it's not a real school after all. If you want, you can give ridiculous punishments to your friends; But remember, don't take it too seriously!
Chances are, your friends won't stop joking throughout class. No need to be upset! Make class more fun by appointing one person to be the “class supervisor”; The supervisor is in charge of giving punishment to students who misbehave. Have fun in the games you created yourself
- Give them a warning if they don't stop chatting in class.
- If they perform well, give gifts that are simple and attractive.
- Don't forget to give assignments.
- Prepare a whiteboard or large sheet of paper to replace the whiteboard.
- Go on a fake "field trip".
- Don't be a teacher who is too fierce and cruel.
- If they misbehave, stop the teaching and learning process or ask them to leave the "classroom."
- Create a lesson schedule.
- Punish students for being rude or unwilling to listen.
