Nothing puts Life Skills to the test like an elementary class performance. Kids have to practice responsibility, flexibility, problem-solving, and integrity – all within 30 minutes. And they have to do it in front of an audience.
On Wednesday, 2nd graders demonstrated their mastery of these Life Skills with a presentation of Aesop’s Fables, which they did for friends and family. Students acted out The Wind and the Sun, The Lion and the Mouse, The Town Mice and the Country Mice, and the classic Tortoise and the Hare.
In a mere six class sessions, students had learned the stories, created sets, learned about blocking and character, and rehearsed like a real drama troupe. The kids were fearless, and in addition to receiving a lesson on performance, they were clearly having fun. Here’s a quick look at the result of their efforts.
