Inspired by our recent field trip to the First Stage Theater’s production of Miss Nelson is Missing, students in Room 123 decided to create their own plays. More specifically, they decided to act out several of their favorite songs they’ve learned in our classroom. Over the last week, students worked in small groups to plan choreography, create sets and props, and rehearse. Finally, they presented their plays to other first grade and senior kindergarten classes!
Harry, Thomas, Leyla, and Ondine presented Ken Lonnquist’s “Wrap a Rainbow ‘Round the Sky.”
Nate, Jaki, Will, Ben S., Hannah, Erin, Ander, Emilie, Lauren M., Lauren H., Niko, and Eric acted out Pete Seeger’s “If You Miss Me at the Back of the Bus.”
Ava, Naomi, Michael, Paul, Hunter, Peter, Ben G., and Mike performed Ken Lonnquist’s “Jaws of the Crocodile.”
