Jack and the Beanstalk

March 2, 2012

On Monday March 5, both Head Start classes will be going on a field trip to see Jack and the Beanstalk at the Chicago Symphony. In preparation for this exciting day each classroom has incorporated Jack, the Giant, and those magic beans into their lesson plans. The students have planted beans to make their own beanstalk, acted out the story with costumes and props, and created many arts and craft projects with beans and beanstalks. Also, two members of the Chicago Symphony came to each class to sing, dance, and to really get the students immersed in the story.
