Kindergarten students at The Learning Center Charter School traveled to Young Harris College to view a performance of “The Great Alphabet Adventure” on September 23rd. The Theater at Young Harris provided this free performance.
“The Great Alphabet Adventure” was a live stage production that was an energetic adventure into the fantasy of stories told through books and the power of discovery that is unlocked through reading and learning.
“Field trips are a hallmark of primary education and serve as a way to enrich and expand upon lessons that happen in the classroom,” said Kindergarten teacher, Louise Smith. She added that field trips strengthen observation skills by immersing students into sensory activities, increase student’s knowledge in a particular subject area, and expand a student’s awareness of their own community.
“Covid has made the last two school years drastically different and we are so happy to be able to bring some normalcy back this year and take our students on field trips,” said Ryan Bender, Head of School.
After the show, students enjoyed a picnic lunch and played on the playground near the college.
“It was so wonderful to have our students out in the community,” said Smith.
