The Mirthquake

The Mirthquake, originally uploaded by royblumenthal.

I visited Jennifer at her school today, to help her fix her video machine.

So when the bell rang, I asked Jennifer if we could do The Mirthquake with the kids.

It's a beaut group exercise that I got from a book called THE LAUGHING CLASSROOM.

People pair up, and make eye contact. For the first twenty seconds, they just silently smile.

The next twenty seconds. They silently mime laughter.

The last twenty seconds they let out all of the pent up laughing sounds.

This drawing was done on Jen's whiteboard, and then finessed afterwards so the kids can have it as a reference for tomorrow.
