The story of the little mole...

See more: Learning Activities & Games

The story of the little mole is an illustrated children's book, that was translated into many languages. You can watch an animated version on YouTube. Below is a link to the German version; play it without audio, no voice needed.

Watch with your learners, then ask them to re-enact the story. Assign roles: who is the mole, the horse, the dog? Then act out the story, maybe even record it on video!

Make sure that the learners take the personalities of the different characters into account: look down or up, sign fast or slow, use space and facial expression as needed.

Of course, you can do this with many stories. Try and find stories with little or no text, so that learners can practice signing the message of the story, instead of the words!
