Mrs. Uccello's Honors Reads a Christmas Carol

We read A Christmas Carol, and we focused on the character of Scrooge and his transformation. We were lucky enough to have the chance to attend a showing of this play (presented by WAMS) at the Palace Theater. The play was wonderfully executed and helped bring the story to life for the students! The students’ final project was to decorate our door for the annual TMS door decorating contest. They put in a large amount of effort depicting the setting of London in mid 1800, specific character traits of Scrooge, his transformation due to the spiritual visitors, and the overall theme of the story. They were thrilled to have come in third place out of all the classes! It wasn’t just great reading for the students; it was also a great amount of fun!
