Today we went on a field trip to Stages Theater in Hopkins to see a production of the play Bear Snores On. This play is based on the book Bear Snores On written by Karma Wilson and illustrated by Jane Chapman. We read the story earlier this week, in preparation for our trip.
We were really excited to take our first field trip. We had to eat lunch early and then take a pretty long school bus ride. We had fun and some of us were a little nervous to go to a theater for the first time!
Once we arrived at the theater, we went inside, found our seats and waited for the show to begin.
Before the play started, some of the characters mingled in the audience. They were looking for the bear!
It was such a great performance and the kindergartners were so well behaved and well mannered…I was very, very proud of them. After the performance, the characters from the play were in the lobby of the theater and we had a chance to greet them!
I really think that the bus ride was the best part of the trip for some of us!
Special thanks to our amazing chaperones, who gave up time out of their busy days to accompany us on our trip. We would not be able to do fun things like this without you so THANK YOU Pamela Cummings, Shana Fouts, Colleen Frank, Alyssa Partridge and Traci Schmitt. And a special shout out to Mrs. Radermacher for all she does for our kindergartners!
