SJN Kids Love Theater!
St. John Nottingham's Kindergarten through Third grade classes had the opportunity to invite "Kids Love Musicals!" to visit us recently. Kids Love Musicals is a theatrical group that supports the State of Ohio K-5 curriculum standards in Language Arts, Music, Drama, Dance and Physical Education. This is a hands-on 2 day classroom residency program that brings American Musicals into the classroom. Our students have experienced "Your a Good Man Charlie Brown" , "Cinderella," "Jungle Book", "The Wizard of Oz" and this year "Jungle Book".
This was a hands on classroom experience that my 3rd graders thoroughly enjoyed. Kids Love Musicals brought the theatrical material, music, costumes to make this experience complete. Observing my students work together enjoying music, simple dance steps, dressing up along with learning about musical history was a complete success. My students enjoyed this experience and asked for a continued experience which led the teachers to proceed to Playhouse Square to enjoy Eric Carl's " The Very Hungry Caterpillar".
