Day 6 – Whole-Class Speech Rehearsal

Remember to return your reregistration packages to secure your spot for the 2018/2019 school year.

We began our day with speeches. It took most of the day to get through them all and give feedback to everyone on ways to improve the presentation of the speech. Well done to everyone for their hard work in writing the speech, their bravery in presenting to an audience, the respectful way in which they sat still and listened for so long, and the great feedback they gave to peers. Everyone should continue working on memorising their speech and improving their presentation. We will have the in-class presentation on Monday, where the 3 finalists will be chosen.

We did not have time for math today. As a result, we are moving the math test to Tuesday, February 7th.

During today’s inquiry time, students worked on their final project for this unit. Today’s goal was to write a narration for their RSA Animate. Some students had to do some trouble shooting to speed up their video even more to get it to be 5 minutes or less in duration. Students will work on recording the narration tomorrow.

Students attended French and gym class today.

Thank you for sending in items for the bake sale.

Remember to return the trip form for our visit to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. Forms and payment are due on Monday, February 5th.

Keep collecting pledges and donations for the Jump Rope for Heart Event.
