Laurence 1st graders have been introduced to basic acting skills in drama class. They are learning articulation, projection and expression.
To understand the art of storytelling, and practice characterization, the students performed Tacky the Penguin, by Helen Lester for their 5th grade big buddies. Every actor was given the opportunity to choose their role, create their costume, and decorate the set with handmade snowflakes. Each 1st grader, and their big buddy, also created a penguin craft reflecting on their favorite part of the play. We are so proud of our 1st graders for their hard work in their first live stage performance at Laurence.
