Fifth grader Mitchell Coon acts out a story with Tomah the Mime about his new car.
On Wednesday, Sept. 11, the students at Immaculate Conception School went on an adventure in writing with Tomah the Mime. This all day assembly presented by Mobile Ed. Productions taught students how to reach into their imaginations and sharpen their creative writing skills. Tomah started the day with a 1 hour assembly where he shared his short stories with the classes by both reading the stories and acting them through the art of mime. This not-so-silent mime taught the children to think about characters, situations, and solutions in their writing. He suggested they make their story endings unexpected and to think about the emotions of their characters.
