The cast of Imagination Machine visited Rose Drive Elementary School on Monday, Oct. 19, transforming the multi-purpose room into a hive of activity and excitement.
Students were treated to one play after another as cast members brought to life stories about super heroes, aliens and unimaginable adventure. The only difference here, however, was that each play was written by one of our very own Rose Drive students.
First through fifth grade teachers submitted their students’ original stories back in September, from which a select few were chosen for the cast members to act out. You can imagine those students’ surprise when their names were announced at the beginning of each play.
Not only was the assembly entertaining, but students learned the importance and value of the steps that go into writing a strong story, beginning with the plot, characters and setting, leading up to the conflict, climax and resolution.
A special thank you to our wonderful Rose Drive PTA and families for making assemblies such as these possible. Bringing learning to life is how our students learn best, and YOU helped make this happen!
Pictured are the students whose stories were selected, along with a representative from each first grade class who submitted stories written as a whole class: Zachary Buhler, Kayla Vega Sanchez, Anika Pysher, Ethan Swarat, Tara Powell, Christian Issac, Sean Casey and Zach Harrington.
