Kids on the Block teach important lessons

on December 4, 2017

The Kids on the Block touring puppeteers visited first grade students at Sapphire and Smith Clove on November 28. M-W High School students Lorin, Sydney, John, Emma, and Madison were not only terrific performing with the puppets, they were outstanding working with the students. The puppets greeted students as they arrived for the performance, providing a chance both to see them up close and to talk one on one. The skits were chosen for first graders to learn to empathize, to problem-solve and to help one another.  Part of each skit involved asking the students for questions or suggestions how to solve a problem. There were lots of ideas from the first graders! Awesome work everyone.  The Kids on the Block will be back “on tour” visiting Central Valley, North Main and Pine Tree in the Spring.
