Second Graders Perform Alice’s Adventures with Idioms
Second graders performed the musical Alice’s Adventures with Idioms this morning as a culmination to their learning about poetic devices—idioms, metaphors, similes, and alliterations. Loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, the play—which was written and casted by the second graders—took the audience on a journey that featured the familiar characters of Alice, the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, and the Queen of Hearts. In the spirit of Alice in Wonderland, the second grade parents surprised their children with a tea party following the play. While they enjoyed tea and scones, the students shared with their parents a portfolio of their finished work from throughout the year.
