Book Week Shadow Puppet Fun and Today I Will Fly!


First grade has been inquiring into the properties of sound and light!

In the library we created an opportunity for students to explore concepts about light by using projectors, screens and a variety of materials. In addition to having an exploration time during the unit, we also had a special project during Book Week where we used Piggie and Gerald shadow puppets and acted out Mo Willems’ story: Today I Will Fly. Students (and teachers!) took turns acting out the story with incredible expression and movements.

Well done, grade 1 readers and puppeteers. It was a memorable experience.

Thank you to our lovely librarian, Ms. Valenzuela for creating the shadow puppets.
