Second Grade Reader's Theater- The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs

"Everyone knows the story of the Three Little Pigs...or at least they think they do!"

For our last post for our unit on Reader's Theater, we have a silly and entertaining story. Martha, Caitlin, Andrea, Jadin, Harrison, Corey, Jaziah and Nicholas have worked very hard on this story titled The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs. It is a great story from the wolf's perspective on how the whole thing went down. Enjoy this funny video!

First Grade Reader's Theater- Helping People in Need

For our last group in Reader's Theater, Harper, Kayla, James and Kyliegh have been working on a play titled Helping People in Need. This is a wonderful play reminding us of the importance of helping out in our community. This play inspired our class to collect food for our local Semaritan Ministries. We donated 8 bags of groceries! We hope you are inspired to do the same after watching this video.
