The Art of Storytelling was Focus of Field Trip for Elementary Students

First and second grade students from the Gifted and Talented classes of Pine Tree Elementary had the opportunity to participate in the Imagination Fair hosted by Region 7 ESC at the UT Tyler Campus this year. While at the fair, students from area schools performed stories, worked on problem solving activities, and listened to a professional storyteller.

The day began with a professional storyteller demonstrating the art of telling a story. Next, students were grouped for their problem solving tasks. Pine Tree students worked with their classmates to produce a product for presentation to the other students. Finally, students were allowed to perform stories with peers from other school districts. Each student performed his/her story for a small group, and had the opportunity to perform for the large group.
