Horton Gets Dramatized

To kick off our new school year we decided to start with a week of general responsibility from KONOS Volume II.  At our co-op there was much discussion on responsibility with a variety of examples of responsible people.  One of our students wrote three short stories and the younger students had to tell if the main character was careless or if what happened in the story was an accident.  We also sang "No Man is an Island" but this particular meeting was heavy on discussion.

In order to break it up a bit and have some fun, we asked the kids to dramatize "Horton Hatches the Egg" by Dr. Seuss.  It was hilarious.  DH didn't know this was going to be part of our co-op day but he knew exactly which story we were doing when he saw the pictures.

I don't see how they can be called "friends" when they pick on poor Horton this way.

I love a good dramatization to lighten things up.  Way to go Horton!
