It was a bit of an artsy day today in room 19. After checking, correcting, and discussing homework, we went over to the auditorium for theater class with Mr. Pratt. As usual, he was great and our students were outstanding. Theater class always begins with a warm up routine set to “Be Our Guest.” The students love it, and each week they compete to see who will lead the warm up the following week. Starting this week, instead of having the teacher provide positive feedback to the class for exemplary work in pantomime, he asked the students to do this. And, no surprise, they were both perceptive and articulate in their evaluations.
A little later in the class, Mr. Pratt led them through another classic theater game, the “walk about.”
Our fifth grade students worked more on their "Winter Counts” that we talked about yesterday.
Last week, we started on an art project where the students could only use polygons and straight lines. Most of the students finished it today. Again, we had some outstanding work.
