Costume Design

We have been working on costume design.  The students created their own original costume design.  The students also learned about the meanings of the different colors with their color costume packet.  The costume packet is due on Friday, May 15th.  The students are working right now in groups to make their own costumes out of tape, newspaper, and any other recyclable items they bring in.  We will have a fashion show on Monday in class.  

Shoebox Theaters

The next major project will be creating a shoebox theater.  Please send a shoebox for your child to use.  The students will be making a theater out of the shoeboxes.  If you have any extra shoeboxes please send them, we always have students that need them.
