You’re a Good Friend, Charlie Brown - DAY THREE

August 9, 2017

We can’t believe this week is already halfway over! It’s true what they say: time flies when you’re having fun and that’s especially true with this group of fun and imaginative students who always participate in every activity.

This morning’s story drama class with Miss Jordyn focused on starting our showcase practices. We started by learning a new energy game, called Whoosh! It got the students excited to start the day. Then, we created some Mad Libs stories, which we will be using for our showcase. Everyone was cast in their own stories as all of the Peanuts characters.

Then, we joined Miss Allison for the continuation of our masks. Today we painted the base layer for the characters that we were casted in by Miss Jordyn.

Miss Sonya brought us back from lunch with some more Animal Yoga. We learned lots of new moves that the students can teach their families. We continued learning our movement piece so everyone can practice at home! The song is called "The Book Report" from You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

Miss Jordyn, Miss Sonya and Miss Emma are so amazed by this group of students and at how fast this week is going, but we are so lucky to have two more days with these students, who are allowing us to have just as much fun as they are! Everyone is always so energized and really good team players. They all work together and it is so much fun to watch them have fun while including everyone!

Wondering questions to discuss with the students:

What character are you playing in our story drama? How do they act?

Which game has been your favorite and what does it teach you?
