Flynn Theater Workshop! #resvt

Today second graders participated in a Flynn Theater Workshop in correlation with the Peking Acrobat show they will be viewing next Friday. Mrs. Martin opened the workshop asking students what they thought circus performers needed to have a successful show. Students came up with: focus, confidence, skill, flexibility, practice time, strength, and more. We then had to practice balancing a paper plate on various plarts of our bodies; then we had to try MOVING while balancing our plates! The final activity was getting into groups and trying to make ten points of contact with the floor while staying connected. Students did an amazing job working together and practicing a little bit of the mental learning that goes into being an acrobat! Thank you to Darcie Rankin, Mrs. Tracey Martin, and the Flynn Theater for helping to put this fun and active workshop together!
