Lower Elementary Classes Hosts Classroom Showcases
All three of our Lower Elementary classes held dazzling showcases as part of their Reader’s Theatre curriculum. Their families watched attentively in the audience as each student, dressed in costume, read their parts from several famous literary works.
One class presented a theatrical showcase about South America and its beautiful countries. The students spent weeks learning about South America's culture, art, and people. Students sang a song, performed an excerpt of a play, recited a poem, and danced in the showcase for their families.
The class sang the South American Countries Song, acted out "A Tour Guide of South America," recited the poem "Winter is Coming, Llega el Invierno" by Marisol Perales, and danced to "La Bicicleta" by Shakira and Carlos Vives.
Our second lower elementary class presented a reader's theater performance of Tall Tales: American Legends. Our reader's theater curriculum combines reading practice and theatrical performance. Beaming with pride, each student embodied their role in John Henry's and Paul Bunyan's legendary stories.
The third class adapted Aesop’s famous fable: "The Lion and the Mouse." Students eagerly read, rehearsed, and prepared costumes and props for their showcase.
These performances enhance students' reading skills and confidence by reading with a purpose. It promotes fluency and refines the skill of reading aloud with expression.
Each presentation offered the children a fun introduction to public speaking, surrounded by the support of their classmates and families. Events like the classroom showcases, the Montessori Model United Nations, and the annual Social Studies Fair instill the confidence our students need to share their ideas with our community.
