On Wednesday December 12 the Macdonough third grade went to the Bushnell to see the play Frindle. This play is based on the book by Andrew Clements, which we read before the play. It is about a boy in fifth grade that decides to invent a new word. Other students like his word and soon everyone is using it and the word takes on a life of its own. As a result Nick becomes a bit of a celebrity, but the new word also creates problems at school for Nick.
Thanks to the LEARN program we were able to see this fantastic play. Students were engaged and excited to see the story that they read acted out on stage.
