Today was my second day at Bissonet Plaza Elementary doing my Louisiana Story Fest residency. My day began in Ms. Buras’ first grade class. The students loved the story of The Cajun Cornbread Boy. Afterwards, we had a blast exploring Zydeco and Cajun music with scarves. Here are some students dancing Zydeco! Too cute!
Afterwards, it was upstairs to second grade to visit Ms. Leblanc’s class. They were an attentive, fun-loving group of students. Here they are passing a good time with the music and scarves.
Next, I traveled downstairs to see the Kindergarteners of Ms. Hahn’s class. We had such a great time with the scarves. Look at us in our dance circle!
I really enjoyed seeing Ms. Arnett’s third grade class. They loved hearing about The Cajun Cornbread Boy book. We then began preparing for story theater by doing some drama role-playing activities with the scarves.
Even Ms. Arnett participated! She is so cute role-playing with one of her students!
After lunch, I headed to Ms. Morrow’s 4th grade class. What a fantastic group of students! They radiated joy and appreciation. With a teacher like Ms. Morrow, it’s no wonder! She is positive, upbeat and appreciative of my presence in her classroom.
Here is Ms. Morrow getting in on the action with a group of her students. I love when a teacher leads by example, participating in the activity. What fun they all had! You rock, Ms. Morrow! And thank you for sharing your birthday cupcakes, Mishi! (Yes, Ms. Morales, I still love you too!)
Finally, I ended my day in Ms. McLeod’s last period fifth grade class. They were a wonderful group of students to work with, at times a little chatty but they always settled down when asked. They delighted in the role-playing activities and I could see the sheer joy on their faces.
I enjoyed this group of students. One of the girls said to me, “Ms. Dianne, you are so pretty!” We had to take a picture together. Thank you, sweetheart!
I look forward to more time with my Bissonet students!
Until next time…
