During December the sixth graders practiced on three different Reader’s Theater Plays: “Christmas Truce”, “Reindeer Names”, and “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”. On Tuesday, we performed the plays “Christmas Truce” and “Reindeer Names” for the elementary students.
The “Christmas Truce” is a play set during World War I. A group of German and Britain soldiers agreed to a truce. They decided that there would be no shooting over Christmas. During the truce they exchanged items. The British soldiers were writing letters describing the truce to their families back home. Next we performed “Reindeer Names” by Kathryn Reedy. “Reindeer Names” is a play about how Santa’s Reindeer got their names.
Wednesday, we performed “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” by Dr. Seuss. The Grinch was played by Jordyn Anderson. This play was about a Grinch who tried to steal Christmas but did not succeed. The Grinch realized that Christmas is about giving not just receiving and about the people who we celebrate Christmas with.
We would like to thank the classes who attended and everyone who helped make our plays a success. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
