Puppeteer visits first graders and teaches short vowel sounds
Benton Heights benefits from our partnership with Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte, NC. Artists are scheduled to come into the classroom and work with teachers to plan lessons that are aligned with the NC Curriculum and Common Core.
First Graders at Benton Heights enjoyed a visit from Mrs. Bartlett from The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Mrs. Bartlett is a puppeteer. She brought her puppets in for a fun activity with the students. They enjoyed an interactive lesson on short vowel sounds and each student had a chance to use a puppet themselves.
First Grade will be having two more artists visit this school year. What a fantastic way to excite young learners!
