An exploration of language through the works of Dr. Seuss.
Imagine a magical land populated with audacious characters who speak in rhyme, and a place of brilliant colors and archetypal characters. Dr. Seuss, without question a master storyteller, created a world children revere.
In this introductory literature class, children learn to be outstanding listeners as well as expressive readers as we experience together an array of essential picture books and classic fairytales.
As we learn the art of oral storytelling, we practice how to tell a really great story by using various artistic mediums such as puppetry, and sketching. Practicing the art of using our voices expressively, we investigate the dual process of listening and understanding as we work on vital comprehension.
This class is perfect for students who love to read actively and be read to, work with their hands, and visualize what they read. Be prepared to be entertained as we present our classic stories to an audience of children young and old.
