Mrs. Wall from Milwaukee WI is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need to experience live theater with the help of a funded field trip to see the First Stage Production of Judy Moody and Stink and the Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt.
My students are English Language Learners in a Spanish developmental bilingual program, which means that they are exposed to listening and speaking in English, but learn Spanish reading and writing first. These students transition into English reading and writing in second grade. My students attend one of the largest public elementary schools in Wisconsin, with nearly 800 students, 98% of whom qualify for free and reduced lunches. As the second and third grade English as a Second Language Teacher, I help to bridge Spanish and English Literacy.
If you were to enter my classroom, you would hear students speaking primarily in Spanish, but as I enter the room students begin to shift to English!
They are bridging two languages to become future leaders in an ever-changing world and I will do all that I can to support them.
This year our School District launched the Year of the Arts, which has expanded the arts into more schools and has encouraged all schools to integrate arts in learning. We are doing a novel study of Judy Moody and Stink and the Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt. As a culmination activity, we would like to attend the First Stage Production of the show.
My students will see the story come to life!
Not only will they experience the thrill of a live show, they will be able to compare the performance to the book. This performance may inspire future actors as many of my students have never been to a theater performance. Seeing the live theater performance will enhance the novel study and make it more meaningful.
