December 11, 2015

Winter (break) is coming.

This flyer contains:

  • Announcement: Brave Theatre Instagram
  • Classroom updates: 6th grade design and 5th grade Peter Pan
  • Our last BCI in the House date before 2016
  • Popcorn Tribe: December
  • Huzzah Tribe performance

Brave Theatre Instagram: @bcibravetheatre

I'm taking a leaf out of Ms. Todd's book and starting an Instagram account for Brave Theatre. The handle is @bcibravetheatre.

This is a public account (meaning anyone can follow it), but I will NOT "follow" your students. This means there can be no private messaging on this account--any comments I or your students make will be public as well.

I would like to use this platform to engage students, receive feedback from them, share a little about my life, and teach proper online etiquette.

Sixth Grade Classes

Scene Design

  • This week, we are working on designing backgrounds for hypothetical shows (see photos below!

Costume Week

  • Next week is Costume Week!
  • For our costume design unit, students are to create a "Disneybound" costume (see example below) and wear it to school. A Disneybound costume is a costume made up of regular clothes from their closet (not a Halloween costume; no purchases are expected) that represent a character from a TV show, book, or movie.
  • These can be as simple as wearing all black and being Batman or as complex as the photo of myself that I have attached.
  • All they need to do is wear it to school one day next week! Dress code applies, but if they have a perfect hat, they may wear it in my class ONLY.

Field Trip

THANK YOU to our chaperons for the field trip! We had a great time! See photo below!

Musical Announcement

Ms. Bucklew and I will post results for the musical by next Friday. We are still interviewing students for crew positions. We have thoroughly enjoyed seeing your students audition!

Scene Designs

Yes, I know they are sideways...this program rotates pictures automatically, and I can't figure out how to change it!

Fifth Grade Classes

Peter Pan!

We have been hard at work on Peter Pan--we finished Act One this week!

  • Research--we used stations to discover some background information about the play and the playwright
  • Tableaux--we formed a still picture from Act 1, Scene 1 of Peter Pan (see photo below)
  • Mirrors--we practiced being Peter Pan's shadow
  • Video--we discussed flight onstage and watched some examples!
