Dogwood Elementary School hosted a wonderful Fairy Tale ball this morning!
The show was tied into the grade 2 ELA curriculum in which children just completed a unit of study of Fairy Tales.
They learned about the common characteristics of Fairy Tales, wrote different endings, learned about plot, setting, problem/solutions and how story elements change depending on the culture of the country!
Students performed Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.
Students read Cinderella around the world and learned how culture changes in each story.
Dogwood Elementary students not only honored police officers today but their moms and dads as well!
Members of the SCPD, NCPD & NYPD received a hero's welcome from the boys and girls at Dogwood.
Each officer visiting is a parent of a child at Dogwood Elementary.
The children gave the officers a standing ovation, thank you gifts, a song, and tons of love!
