acting out

Families can talk about the theater. How should each character look, talk, and act in these plays? Which lessons did you like best? They can also challenge each other to use jaunty words like "hoodwink" and "dollop" mixed in with their everyday speech. And wouldn't it make text messages more entertaining?
