Barberton Middle School fifth graders had the opportunity to meet with Mr. O'Connell from the Magical Theatre Company as we kicked off a writing rally in preparation for our Kidscript program this year. All fifth graders learned about the important parts of a story, as well as fun ways to ensure a story is creative and an original piece of writing.
Our fifth graders will be writing a two to three page story that will be submitted to their language arts teacher. Of all the stories submitted, fifty will be sent to the staff at Magical Theatre Company to read and enjoy. They will then choose 2 to 3 stories to turn into plays that will be acted out this spring for all our students to enjoy. We are excited about this program and the many important skills our students learn while participating in Kidscripts.
