Have you always wanted a pet unicorn, to be a mermaid, or to be able to really train a dragon? Then this class is for you! In this course we will explore the wonderful world of magical creatures through literature, writing and the arts! We will read about fantastic beasts, write our own stories and poems, improv and perform pieces about these magical creatures, and create art using our limitless imaginations. This course is best suited for students who want to use their creativity, reading skills, writing skills, and performance abilities to enter a world of magic and fun while also growing in language arts, performing arts and visual arts academic areas.
This course is designed as a challenging enrichment opportunity for students in grade 1–2.
