click clack moo!

Today was an extra good day in third grade because we went on a field trip!  All of the first, second, and third graders (plus teachers and assistants, of course) packed into three school buses and drove to the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence.  Our students throughly enjoyed the theatreworks production of Doreen Cronin's Click Clack Moo.  I think the kids' favorite part was when one of the chickens called Farmer Brown a stink head, and I have to admit I was laughing along with them.  Another comical moment occurred during one of the many songs sung by the cows - one lyric from the chorus: "I'm proud to be Bovine/God bless the USDA."  Check out actress Collen Lis's blog here about her adventures on the road playing Farmer Brown's granddaughter Jenny.

I would highly recommend catching a theatreworks show if you're looking for a fun activity for your children, grandchildren, or students.  Peruse the schedule to see if the acting troupe is coming to a city near you.  I would love to see theatreworks perform Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, a novel by Judy Blume we read earlier this year with my fourth grade class.  Have you seen any children's plays worth checking out?
