Greetings families of TREA
Today we looked at the use of transitions within our speeches.
Our application exercise today,
was to break into teams and provide a mini speech consisting of
a topic, hook, body( 1-2 sentences ) transition and conclusion.
The students did very well on this first attempt at speech writing.
Ultimately I am grooming the students to have the ability to write their own speeches, as they become due in a few weeks.
This group is quite impressive as they diligently bring their speeches each week. Now that they have a frame of reference in regard to speeches I am prepared to gently introduce more formal verbiage and techniques into their class time.
Therefore beginning this week we will alternate speeches
One week will be girl speech week (10/5/16)
The following week will be boy speech week (10/12/16)
I will continue to post the speech prompt page on this homework blog.
The Elves and the Shoemaker. Story with comprehension/ listening questions.
We played poison frog( observation game)
Freeze dance ( listening game)
As our first month comes to a close we’re all slipping nicely into a productive yet fun routine. A sweet balance between learning and laughter, boundaries and blessings.
May your week be full of delightful memories to hold dear.
Very sincerely in service
