Big Bad Wolf

I volunteer in Harrison's kindergarten class every other Friday, usually teaching a technology lesson. This week we began filming the Three Little Pigs. Harrison is playing the big bad wolf in his team. wolf.JPG
At home I have often commented that Harrison's overacting and exuberance reminds me of Jim Carrey or Robin Williams. His portrayal of the big bad wolf was all that. While I coaxed the other kids to show some facial expressions such as happiness and fear, Harrison gave me hunger, craftiness, exuberance, desperation, and joy, with no prompting. I was more than a little surprised at the contrast between Harrison and the other kindergartners.

A related story... Last summer at Vacation Bible School the Yoder ladies led a session which included acting out wailing and weeping. They sought me out afterward delighted with Harrison's expressive nature. I replied that those Gingerichs really know how to express themselves.

I'll post the imovie when completed.
