On Monday, October 14, the second grade students spent the morning at Matthews Playhouse. They watched a performance titled "The Adventures of Madeline". This play was based on the book series Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans. The adventurous Madeline is very good at getting into trouble and causing all kinds of ruckus in her school. Along with some friends, Madeline adopts a new dog, ends up in the hospital, and also meets a young Spanish boy that is full of mischief.
Lily from Mrs. Tarlton's class said, "My favorite part was the hospital. It was really cool because I have that book at home." Owen said, "My favorite part was when Pepito was in the hospital because the cat scratched him really bad." All the second graders had a great time and laughed and giggled until their tummies ached!
