Today was a theatrical day! Our students performed their melodramas for Mr. Pratt. This is the culminating project of this session of theater arts. We had practiced a lot in class as well as on Wednesdays and it showed. The students were great! In fact, Mr. Pratt had some of our students come back and perform for the other classes to show them how it should be done! Unfortunately, he kept me busy too with coaching and assessing the performances. I somehow did not get a chance to even take some photographs. I’m hoping he’ll create some time before Winter Break so I can actually record the productions so we have them available for parents to see.
Otherwise … just all the usual stuff.
