Our much-anticipated field trip to Nutcracker was enjoyed by all. From the back two rows of the second tier of McCaw Hall, third and fourth graders experienced this top-notch production. The giant mouse king and the peacock seemed to be a couple of highlights for our class. Now that I have found the music on Youtube, I may continue playing it for the students for some time. 🙂
Prior to the show, we marveled at the details of the huge model railroad scene set up for the holidays in the Seattle Center Armory (the former Center House). We were all able to sit together to eat our sack lunches there as well.
After pausing for photo ops after the show, we braved heavy traffic to return to school. All in all, we feel very blessed to have had this wonderful opportunity.
