Mrs. Sullivan's Classroom Play 1-5
First grade was studying the genre "drama" in Reading class. After reading the play " Where Are My Animals Friends?" we chose parts, made masks, created scenery, and rehearsed our parts. The students took turns with the different parts and learned how to be not only a good performer, but also a good audience member. This class project was also done to help us get ready for our field trip where we will attend a performance at the Kirby Center.
