What a beautiful day for a field trip! So off to UMass Fine Arts Center went Sunderland K, First, and Second grades! After thoroughly enjoying the story of the 3 little pigs... as told by Alexander T. Wolf (AKA Big Bad Wolf) we were off to the FAC to see the play! The set was fanciful, the performances were full of music and dancing, and we were fully involved in the story as it unfolded! We even got to be "jurors" and got to decide on the guilt or innocence of the Wolf! What fun! This afternoon after talking about the characters, each of their points of view, and whether they persuaded us to believe in "their" side of the story, it was time for writing workshop. Today we wrote thank you letters to our P.T.O. for generously supporting this field trip by covering the cost of every student's ticket! WOW! What a great day! Thanks again, P.T.O. for providing such enrichment to our literacy program in second grade! We loved it!!
