Magic Carpet Theater Performance Encourages Imagination and Reading
Fourth and fifth graders will have special workshops in their classrooms after the show designed to promote reading and unlock the imagination, a key to the reading process. Once a student outgrows picture books, they need to be able to make pictures in their minds to comprehend what they are reading. The workshops use discussion, dramatic play and imagery to help students tap into the precious resource of their own imaginations.
A big thank you to Target for funding the all-school show. The workshops are sponsored by the Abbot PTO. Thank you PTO members.
