NEISD collaboration brings "buggy" workshops to schools

As part of the NEISD Arts Integration Initiative, Early Childhood, Family Engagement, and Fine Arts departments have collaborated with “Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts” to provide NEISD prekindergarten students, families, and teachers with an educational arts based experience.

This week, Jeanne Wall, Wolftrap Artist from Virginia, is sharing her “Going Buggy” workshop at nine campuses throughout the District. Jeanne uses imaginative props, storytelling, puppetry, and music to bring to life these educational tales about insects from Africa, Mexico and Native America. Using an interactive style, Jeanne draws her audience into the stories, creating lots of family fun.

Nine campuses are hosting these “buggy” workshops: Montgomery, Royal Ridge, Roan Forest, East Terrell Hills, Wilshire, Walzem, El Dorado, Northern Hills, and Fox Run elementary schools.
