Invasion from Mars in Fourth Grade

Families, teachers and students all enjoyed the amazing presentation of Invasion from Mars as students impressed the audience with their fluency and expressive reading.  Ghosts, pirates, ninjas, princesses, etc., all took center stage for Mrs. Rosenvall's 4th Grade Readers' Theater.  Very realistic, 4th grade!
