Reading came alive for teacher Krystyna Jakielski and her Woodland Elementary East second grade students Tuesday.
Jakielski's 21 students presented a Readers Theater and performed three short plays for parents and siblings. It's the 10th year Jakielski has presented the program, and she said it's important to inspire students to love learning.
"It keeps the students interested in reading and allows them to use their imagination and creativity to make stories come alive," Jakielski said.
Student Yu Jie Zheng was the narrator for the plays of "Cinderella," "The Bremen Town Musicians" and "The Emperor's New Clothes."
The students have been working on a monthlong unit on fairy tales leading up to Tuesday's presentation at the Gages Lake school.
