The Sun Will Come–Extending Learning

By Allie Magnuson

Our classroom produced The Sun Will Come-a fun little play that  I discovered on

Our Kids in Costume

We had a wonderful time staging the play and creating great simple costumes. But the learning didn’t stop there. We used the play in our other work, too. I found the play to be a great launch pad for learning. Students struggling with sight words wrote down as many words as they could find in the play in under a minute. Students tested their reading comprehension by writing about the play. I had a bulletin board in the classroom with vocabulary that we had learned during the staging of the play.

This was not just a play for my kids–it was an exciting learning experience that we all will remember for a long time.

With more than 700 plays available on with teaching resources and extension activities, this is my “go-to” place for creativity and play ideas.
