Creative Costumes

We've been busy practising our item and creating our costumes for the end-of-year Celebration of Learning.
We've been using the Key Competencies of 
Participating and Contributing, 
and Relating to Others 
to get the job done.

Butterflies ...

a sun ...

fairy wands ...

a dog bone ...

a toadstool ...

worms ...

a fly in a web ...


Are you intrigued by our costumes and props?


  1. Dear B4,

    I am quite intrigued by your costumes and props! They all look quite professional! I hope that you will be sharing your play. I would love to see it!

    As they say in show business, break a leg! (Do they say that in New Zealand?)

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Y♥llis

    1. Dear Mrs. Yollis
      I've been working hard on my costume. My costume is a spider.
      Does your class do a dance?

    4. @ Ryan,

      I can tell that you have been working hard on your costume. It looks fabulous! How did you end up being a spider?

      Our class does dance, but just for fun and no performances yet.

      @ Bonnie,

      Happy birthday! I bet you will make a wonderful flower! I look forward to seeing the video! I will show it to my third graders.
      We are out of school this week for Thanksgiving. It is a national holiday.

      @ Riley,

      Good luck with your busy bee! I look forward to seeing your video!

      from Bonnie

  2. Dear B4,
    I think our costumes are so beautiful because I think we are as good as professional artists!
    I think Anika and Bonnie did a very good job on the mushroom.
    The butturflies are as good as the mushroom!
    We will have a lot of fun when it is our turn on the stage.

      We do have an end-of-the-year program. It is in June when our school year ends. It is a program with a lot of songs, but no costumes. Too bad for us!

      I look forward to seeing your video and sharing it with my third grade students here in California.

      I love dogs! In fact, I have a funny yellow lab named Buck. Mrs. McKenzie can show you a picture on our 365 if you'd like.
