Bridges is an amazing literacy program through Minneapolis Children's Theatre. Thanks to the LC PTA, private donations from LC family and friends, and the Little Canada REC association, all year our entire fifth grade community came together to work with artists and literacy specialists in both English and Spanish. The work presented by the Children's theater program became a significant additional part of the fifth grade curriculum. The children felt success in telling and creating stories. Our teachers used stories from the program to enhance the literacy curriculum and we saw an increased achievement in literacy MCAs in our fifth grade students. The children created their own plays and had an opportunity to perform them on the Children's Theater stage. The energy was amazing, the community was amazing.
