Last Friday, we began to work on a Reader's Theater unit that includes a focus on play writing, editing, production, and character study. It is my hope we will end the year with a sincere team effort that will bring to you a play based on a realistic fiction book written by our classmate, Graham Anton.
Portions of the play will contain interesting facts about sea life that will be written and shared by students in our class. This effort will be ongoing with edits made daily so that many fingerprints are literally all over our work!
Starting tomorrow, our Reading Workshop volunteers will help to supervise mask making and prop building. We'll do as much in the room as possible and extra pairs of hands will be very welcome!
We will perform the play in our classroom on the last full day of school. Please mark your calendars for a performance on Tuesday, June 20 at 2:00.
For the record: Students will NOT need to memorize their lines and they will NOT need to make costumes at home. However, students might dress in the color of their characters if they already own or can borrow the clothing.
Please email me if you have any questions.
I hope your first grader remembered to share that you will not be able to log into his/her Seesaw account for the next two weeks. That's because we are in the process of secretly adding reflections to each of our folders, as well as, culling from each in order to create an online digital portfolio to share with you at your child's Digital Portfolio Celebration.
(About two weeks ago, you should have received a notification concerning sign-up dates from ptcfast.com. Remember they will take place on June 15 at 2:50 or on June 16 at 2:50.)
Please let me know if you are unable to attend.
