MVES 3rd Graders participated in an active drama workshop on Monday, April 9, 2018. Students were treated a Ky Shakespeare Group workshop entitled “Fairy Tales from Around the World”. They were able to take to the stage and improvise various fairy tales and folktales from around the world. Each student was able to become a character, use small props, and participate in an impromptu drama interpretation. Then students compared and discussed how genres, passed down through oral tradition, can change over time and differ based on culture.
A grant for the workshops was provided by the Delta Dental Making Smiles Happen program. The grant provided 4 small group workshops, so that each 3rd grade student was able to participate and be an active learner in the groups!
