Three more weeks to go, ladies!! Hard to believe. I will miss all of you over the summer. Maybe we can plan some fun park days or something.
For this coming week, we did not talk about presentation. So...here it is: The students will recite a classic poem. They will have 2-3 min. Please try and memorize this poem as much as they can. No one should be staring at a sheet of paper the entire time. The students can bring props, costume, or even act out the poem. Get creative.
The focus for the presentations is to review all the public speaking skills....so please go over those with your students at home.
Costume attire for this week is : 50's. This should be a lot of fun. I need to dust off my pink ladies jacket!!!
