Last year a team of parents staged the production, "Character Matters," with students in the 3rd grade. We had a great amount of fun introducing theatre to 30 kids. This fall we are staging the production, "The Case of the Missing Paragraph," which is a show that explores the topic of composition. We picked it because we thought it would be of help to the 4th graders whose focus will be on writing. The script is fun and the songs are catchy.
It was a sweltering afternoon when she knocked on the door. She was looking for a detective. Someone to find her paragraph. It was missing. No the dog had not eaten it. She'd come to the right place: The Expository Detective Agency. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.This 35 minute musical play is a fun way for students to learn about the tricks and rules of punctuation and grammar. No music or drama experience needed. You can read more about the show below or click on this link to read the first third of the play and listen to the music. http://www.badwolfpress.com/Paragraph.htm
