CROWN POINT | On June 5, Colonel Wheeler Middle School seventh grade students came to Lake Street to perform reader’s theatre scripts to all elementary students.
The students read twenty one different scripts throughout the grade levels. These seventh grade students, led by Mrs. Susan Bateman-Boswell were excited to perform scripts ranging from fairy tales in kindergarten, creation myths and fables in third grade, to realistic fiction in fifth grade.
“We have been really excited to interact with younger students and make a good impression on them, said Ariahna Klein, Wheeler 7th grader.
Seventh grade students worked on their performances during RTI class for the last month. They created their own props and really strove to add excitement to their performances through movement and vocal expression. The scripts they are performing relate to what they have learned throughout the school year.
“We have been learning about morals and lessons in folklore and it’s fun to teach these concepts to younget students through performance, said Jessica Gorski, Wheeler 7th grader. ”
Lake Street students were excited to interact with middle school students in a fun and positive atmosphere.
“Our students had a ball listening and watching middle school students present stories in an engaging way," said Mrs. Cindy Wise, Lake Street principal. "We look forward to continuing this partnership.”
