WATCH: The Beanstalk Speaks

Maria Eby, a first grade teacher at the Charles R. Bugg Creative Arts and Science A+ Magnet Elementary school in Raleigh, N.C. tells the story of Jack and the Beanstalk - from the point of view of the Beanstalk.

For more information about how Eby and the teachers at Bugg Elementary learned how to integrate the arts into their lessons, see http://aplus-schools.ncdcr.gov.

Long time in coming. Thank you for becoming a teacher! So glad this was filmed. Now if only it was required of all teachers to watch and/or taught in college.

You rock, Eby!!! Excellent lesson. Proud to say you were one of my students!

What a wonderful adaptation of the classic story “Jack and the Beanstalk.” It’s vividly clear how engaged the students were by this creative and interesting presentation, and how much they were learning at the same time.

Hi, Maria! That was a GREAT learning activitity! It’s very clear that the students made connections in other curricular areas and extended their understanding of theme and characters of this folk tale. With the adoption of CCSS, integration of content across the curriculum makes more sense than ever. So much to teach, so little time!
