Playhouse in the Park visits BPS 1st and 2nd graders
Playhouse in the Park returned to BPS to provide workshops for our students in first and second grade. First grade students participated in the "Green Eggs and Ham" workshop, while second grade students covered "Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock".
These stories were read aloud to students on the first day, then on the subsequent days, the teaching artists lead students in reenacting portions of the play and reimagining scenes based on the students' imaginations. The workshops were scheduled to last 45 minutes per day for five days, however one of the days for the first grade workshop was canceled because the teaching artist called out sick and there were no subs available. Students loved this fun-filled, immersive experience! It deepened their reading comprehension and analysis skills using the power of collaborative and visual storytelling.
