This morning the BES 4th grade class took a field trip to the Berlin Middle High School to explore the Drama Department. The BES Mountaineers were greeted by several BHS Dramateers and BMHS Choral/General Music/Dramateer Advisor Ms. Eliashuk.
The fourth grade students are currently engaged in a reading module about the Arts and have recently been reading several plays. This prompted the fourth grade team to reach out to Ms. Eliashuk, the district’s Drama Expert. This visit brought their reading to life through touring the BMHS stage, hearing from Dramateers and learning more about the elements of a musical and play. It was an exciting morning for the students outside of their classroom routine. These types of hands-on experiences have helped to increase the engagement of the Mountaineers in what they are learning.
Thank you to Mrs. Bersaw for reaching out to Ms. Eliashuk and coordinating the visit. A big thank you to Ms. Eliashuk and her Dramateers for taking the time to engage with the 4th grade students and share their passion for the stage.
