My Students

We are an arts academy with a focus on the arts. We use standards based instruction and use the arts to motivate and educate children through creativity. As with many schools however, budget cuts have effected the amount of supplies we can get.

My students are in first grade and are extremely motivated by the creativity that theater brings to literature and other content areas.

They have been learning the vocabulary of the theater and have enjoyed the arts tremendously. These kids value the arts and enjoy the way the arts allow them to express themselves.

My Project

With the use of puppets in teaching theater, students will be able to further explore theater vocabulary and recreate scenes from literature, plays, and musicals they have been exposed to. Puppets will allow students to think creatively, recreate, and also review elements of theater and visual arts at the same time.

The arts are essential to creating innovative and critical thinking students to make a difference in the world.

Today, it may simply seem like puppets, but the creativity, vocabulary, and thinking that it will foster is priceless. Thank you for contributing to such a great cause, we appreciate your help and efforts.
