Traveling Teacher Show at UMall
I have talked before about how UMall keeps making improvements and changes, and that I am on board with where they are going. Well add another one in the win column for this little mall that could: The Traveling Teacher Show.
I am going to tell you up front that I did not take C to this. You see, the shows are currently offered Tuesday and Thursdays at 10:30 am in the mall, and C is now in preschool those times (sniff, yet also sigh of relief). So while out running errands on my own (gasp) I stopped by to check this out for you all (you're welcome). It was so cute! (And no more sound effects, I promise.)
This is a variety show, as it were, created and presented by 2 women who are both trained educators, former teachers, animated, and simply great with kids. They read stories, sing songs, have a puppet show presentation, engage in some audience participation events, and also do a craft. Yet beyond that I can't really give you too many details since each show has a different theme and is different. Every Tuesday and Thursday is a different show.
The primary goal of The Traveling Teacher Show is to teach kids to be environmentally conscious and aware. In the meantime, though, it is just fun.
The show advertises all ages in some places and ages 2-5 in others. The group I saw in attendance there was primarily 1 to 3 year olds and they were all having fun. UMall provides a barricade of sorts, floor mats for cushioning, and folding chairs for parents. So despite being in a mall it is quite comfortable.
Oh, and did I mention it's free!?
Again, as of right now this is scheduled to continue Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 10:30 am, at the mainstage at UMall. But you will want to stay tuned to their Facebook page and website (see below) for most up to date information. They have even listed all of the themes for the rest of the month. UMall also does a great job of updating their events on their website, as well.
Don't forget that UMall has a Chick-fil-A, the My Fairy Godmother shop, Cameron's and that crazy back room, A Southern Season, and soon to come the Chapel Hill Public Library's temporary spot (which we got a sneak peek of and looks gorgeous!).
