Well, our 5th Annual Living Wax Museum is coming up in less than a week. From what I can gather, our students are on target and ready for next Tuesday and Wednesday’s recordings and performances.
We’ve taken 3 opportunities to spend time in the computer lab, practicing our speeches using PhotoBooth. Students recited speeches, and then played them back to observe and listen. A few comments I heard:
“If I didn’t say “um” so much, my speech would be shorter!”
“I didn’t realize I was talking so fast!”
“I am trying to increase my volume.”
“I didn’t know that I moved around so much when I speak.”
Here are a few snapshots from around the lab yesterday, as students practiced and practiced and practiced….
Finally, today we say goodbye to Mr. White. Mr. White is a yearly volunteer in my classroom, where he helps with Read Naturally. He loves coming in to help students improve their reading, and the thank you notes that he’ll receive today will mean so much to him. We created another bag, and think he’ll look adorable carrying it around town!
