The Paperbag Princess

Whales reveled in their success as genuine thespians today as they performed The Paperbag Princess by Robert Munsch to a rapt audience of ELC friends! Whales have been true reading detectives, exploring the story at length and noticing elements like character, setting and plot. In addition, they spent time analyzing the story's beginning, middle and end as they related to concepts of conflict and resolution. 

The content of the play inspired further conversation, as Whales explored questions such as, "What makes a good friend?" "What makes a princess a princess?" and "Was the play's ending happy or sad? Why?" 

A video of the performance can be found on the "watch and listen" tab above.
