Thank you for loaning me your creative out-of-the-box-thinkers for a full school year! I honestly cannot imagine capping off my 33-year career with any other class!
Snowy Owls: I'll be on the lookout for you around Yarmouth and Freeport. I can't wait to bump into you unexpectedly!
Happy summer everyone!
Yesterday, we began to work on a Reader's Theater unit that will focus on playwriting, editing, production, and character study. It is my hope we will end the year with a sincere team effort that will bring to you a play based on the last science unit (Ocean Life) of first grade.
Portions of the play will contain interesting facts about sea life that will be written and shared by our Snowy Owls. The effort will be ongoing with edits made daily so that many fingerprints are literally all over our work!
Starting next week, our classroom volunteers will help to supervise mask making and prop building. We'll do as much in the room as possible and extra pairs of hands will be very welcome!
We will perform the play in our classroom on the last Friday of school. Please mark your calendars for a performance on Friday, June 15 at 2:00.
For the record: Students will NOT need to memorize their lines and they will NOT need to make costumes at home. However, students might dress in the color of their characters if they already own or can borrow the clothing.
Please email me if you have any questions.
