Today we watched a few sample videos and discussed what makes a good speech. We concluded that a good speech should have an introduction and conclusion, and the speaker should be looking at the class while speaking with a loud, clear, slow voice. I also gave students a chance to ask me any questions about their upcoming T.U.S.C. presentation during their Finish Up work period.
Our Finish Up work period today focused on finishing the plan for our Monster Stories and starting the rough draft. I have asked students to finish their rough draft of the Monster Stories for Monday, so that we can edit and revise them in time to read to our Kindergarten buddies for Halloween. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the stories.
Possible discussion topics for this week include : Journaling, magnets, Bunnicula, and the 24 hour clock.
**A reminder that there is no school for students tomorrow.
Have a great weekend!
