1. Start of session

The clap
In a circle, the children pass a clap to the person next to them (clapping hands) as they go round the circle. For the clap to be passed, the pupils must look each other in the eye before clapping their hands!

2. The drawings

  • Each group presents its drawing to the class, explaining their choice. The pupils begin by presenting their drawing, and then the other pupils in the class can ask them questions. The facilitator can also ask the group and the students in the class questions to clarify the presentation.

  • When all the groups have finished, we have all the elements of what will become the class story. All these elements can then be displayed in chronological order.

3. Closing ritual

The leader stands in front of the other members of the group so that everyone can see him or her. He or she places his or her arms horizontally and claps his or her hands above his or her head. The others must follow suit, respecting his or her rhythm. Then, little by little, he/she will speed up until there is applause.
