Mrs. Silva from Philadelphia PA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Field Trip to the Theater!!

My students need a life experience. Not many inner city children have the opportunity to attend the theater to see a live performance.

My Students

My third graders are eager sponges ready to absorb all they can. They are so excited to be in third grade. This school year is an exciting year for them. Where most students like this class or that class the most, they seem to enjoy each subject area.

These scholars are engaged in all subject areas which seems to be easy for them because they truly desire to understand.

They especially work well in groups and as well as individually.

My Project

It is a wonderful opportunity to attend a live show. The feeling and atmosphere is quite different than any prerecorded movie or story read aloud. However, inner city children rarely have this chance to be a part of this life experience. We plan to attend a well known story, Snow White, that was seen in the movies or home video by all of my scholars. They have even read some various level book of this story.

What makes the theater different from the rest - is the passion that is felt by the performers.

Scholars will have a window of opportunity to meet the actors and actresses after the show. They can take selfies with them or ask questions.
