This week, Group Six explored “Fantasies” by reading several books, engaging in focused discussions, and completing follow-up activities. After defining “fantasy” as anything involving a strong sense of imagination, Group Six applied this definition to Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. Everyone in Group 6 created their own monster inspired by Sendak’s Wild Things.
Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters and several Dr. Seuss stories were read and also discussed. Group six visited the Medieval Times, reading Saint George and the Dragon. Then, they created some amazing dragons of their own out of Play-doh, pipe cleaners, and tissue paper. All in all, it was a magical week to end our summer program.
