"The Sleeping Pig"

First graders have been learning tips and strategies about “How to Read Aloud Like an Expert” in their Lucy Calkins Reading Units of Study. To put their learning to practice, they recently performed the short play "The Sleeping Pig" for second grade students. Through reading the play and rehearsal of their lines, the students focused on the specific skill of 'using drama to bring the topic to life' as well as their fluency. They also made the props, costumes, and background, so their creative skills were put to the test!
