Phenix students entertain parents

With the hustle and bustle and excitement of the holiday season, Suzanne Driskill’s pre-K Class invited their parents to a holiday breakfast. The tables were adorned with handmade decorations made by each four-year-old.

After time in the cafeteria, the parents were invited to the library to see what the children had been doing in the library this year. Since nursery rhymes are fun to say and even more fun when a child can act them out, the children entertained their parents by performing the nursery rhymes they had learned in the library. The four-year-old’s met new friends, including Humpty, Two Jacks and even Bo Peep.

The youngsters learned the meaning of new words, such as tuffet and curds and whey. They discovered that Humpty Dumpty was an egg and that the sheep that Little Bo Peep lost will eventually come home.

With the help of prekindergarten teacher Driskill and her teaching assistant Tammy Goldman, the children became actors.

Librarian Allyson Watkins directed the performance. Not only did students act; they also sang songs they learned in the library.

The students did a fabulous job! Nursery rhymes came to life and everyone had a great time.
