First we picked a book or a book character, if we already had one we loved. Then we read up on that character. Either getting to know a new one or getting reaquainted with one we already met. We had to make a list of what we would need to be to imitate that character and then work on what we would say. We talked about Wax Museums and how life like the wax sculptures are.
We made invitations and invited all the other classrooms...so they could sign up and come in shifts, of course. Our room was VERY full. Some of our character statues overflowed into the hallway. We sat next to our book and a play button (bottle cap with a sharpie drawn arrow "play" sign.) Visitors would come to a statue, press play, and listen to facts about each of the characters.
