Broadway Here We Come!

My students need tickets to see a broadway play in the city.

My Students

Oscar Wilde once said, "I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms." Our Kindergarten students would be most grateful to experience one of the greatest forms of art.

We teach at a Title I school located in an urban area of a major southeastern city.

86% of the student population is considered economically disadvantaged and they do not have the resources or funds at home to be able to attend the Pinkalicious play. Also, 47% of the students are English Language Learners, which makes it a challenge for them to learn basic English skills. Most of these children come from homes where English is rarely or never spoken. This creates a challenge for us as we teach literacy and writing skills.

My Project

As teachers, we lack the funds to provide our entire Kindergarten with a field trip into the city to see a play. It is also difficult to ask our students' parents to provide the funds because of their economic status'. Our students need these play tickets so they will be able to explore what life is like in the city. One of our units of study this year is city vs. country, and this field trip will help give them a real-life experience. Most of our students would never get the chance otherwise to have this experience. After this trip, our students will create a an "opinion writing" piece on if they prefer life in the city or country. Our students will learn how transportation is used in the city and they will also get to experience a "real live play" where they will have to show good manners, learn how to be a polite audience, and see the sights of a big city.

Donations for our request for play tickets to see Pinkalicious will make a difference because the field trip knowledge will be used in literacy and writing to reinforce skills taught during direct or small group instruction.

Tutors and assistants working in our classroom will also benefit from the children receiving these tickets because they will use the materials to reinforce literacy skills.
