St. Paul's classroom becomes a drive-in (8 photos)

Friday, April 04, 2014   by: Staff received the following message and photos from the St. Paul Catholic School JK/SK class, who had a drive-in movie day today with their homemade cars.

The Early Learning Kindergarten Team at St. Paul’s School has planned something very special for their JK/SK class.

Classroom teacher Ms. Watson along with early childhood educators Mrs. Misasi and Mrs. Mathewson and educational assistants Ms. Smith and Mrs. Augusto have transformed their classroom into a drive-In movie theatre.

The teachers, family members and students have transformed boxes into Batmobiles, cars, fire trucks, and characters from different movies like Cars, some of which are equipped with real working lights, sounds and motion.

We are so impressed with the turnout of our Drive-In Movie Day.

In our class of 28 students, all of the families have been so supportive.

It is evident that a lot of thought and time have gone into making this day special for their children.

A number of literacy and numeracy activities were planned to round up the event.

The students viewed the popular new movie “Frozen.”

They were supplied with popcorn and a juice box to enjoy in their car.

The kindergarten car show has been displayed in the hallways on St. Paul’s School for all to see!

They will remain at the school until Wednesday, April 9.

We thank Mr. Chilelli and staff for their support.

Upon reading the title of this article quickly, I thought I was going to be reading about a tragedy. I am very happy to hear that it was some kids and their teacher having an awesome creative time. Kudos to the teachers.

and, after going through the pictures attached, I have to agree with scott.

Also, how the heck did those kids get that creative. When I was that age, the car would have still looked like a box. might have some red marker on it.

I was never a creative kid

Great way to indoctrinate them early to car culture. Wonder if they will be able to enjoy it when they are adults.

This kind of creative, community based learning is a tribute to the staff and parents.
As a retired teacher it makes me proud!
