Residencies with First Graders in Charlotte and Raleigh

The Mime Who Talks works with first- and second-graders at WG Byers Elementary School through Charlotte’s Arts and Science Council’s Project Lift in April, 2015. At a spring intersession camp, students explore dinosaurs and beef up their literacy through arts and movement. With Kerrigan, they enter the world of dinosaurs using their bodies and imaginations, and write about it as if they were there.

In Raleigh, at Brooks Museums Magnet Elementary School, first-graders use mime, movement, and imagination to write “small-moment narratives.” They will discover details in small moments by acting out the sensory information they experience imaginatively, and then write. ¬† IMG_3711
