This week, since all grades are currently studying drama, we've been doing some Readers Theater in the library.
Third grade read an adaptation of Book! Book! Book! by Deborah Bruss. Here's a video version of the joke that inspired this book! I love the acting in it, too!
Fourth grade read The Frog Prince Continued by Jon Scieszka, a very funny story about what happens AFTER "happily ever after." Here's a great video of some students from a public library performing the readers theater play.
Fifth grade read excerpts from Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! by Laura Amy Schlitz, which tells the story of a medieval village through the voices of the young people who live there. Here's a great slideshow of some of the book's beautiful illustrations.
And here's a picture of Ms. Peace's class performing an excerpt from "Will the Plowboy." Josh is playing the part of Will, while Jarron is the narrator.
