Lee Road Elementary School students in grades 3-5 experienced a new level of storytelling with the help Lluana Jones, mime artist and facilitator of the Mobile Ed program Young Authors Day on Nov. 13. Sponsored by the Lee Road PTA, classes kicked the day off with a high energy assembly where Ms. Jones, dressed as a mime, performed and then spoke to students about what to expect from the fun-filled day.

She explained the storytelling process of picking a person, place, problem and solution and the difference between writing for the stage and for the page. Following the assembly, students returned to their classrooms and were separated into groups to brainstorm and create their own short fiction stories. The goal was to create a story that could be mimed by Ms. Jones on stage later in the day. Students followed the storytelling exercise prompted by Ms. Jones who traveled to the different classrooms to answer questions and help the students as they explored their imaginations.

Towards the end of the school day, the classes gathered together again for a final mime performance from Ms. Jones. At least one story from each class was selected as Ms. Jones successfully performed their narratives. The program was a great way to stimulate imagination and critical thinking skills as students were recognized for their creative writing abilities.
