The third grade classes of Jennifer Felice and Marleni Llenin performed the musical Character Matters II for the entire Westchester Hills School 29 community, including parents, families and special guests.
The students worked for months learning ten songs and many lines of dialogue.
By incorporating the performance arts into the curriculum, the
students improved their reading, writing, and speech. They became better able to
identify mood and character details through acting. Every child had the
opportunity to be on stage, improving confidence in their abilities.
show was about fairy tale characters learning character traits and good manners.
The students learned valuable lessons, and then shared those lessons
with the rest of the school community.
