Great Start to 5th Grade: Summer Speech

Welcome back to school C6 Families,

We have made a great start to the new school year. Already into the rhythm of math workshop, independent reading, and RAH. Sunday reading was our first day to hit 1200 minutes as a class. This was our normal goal per day for RAH. It took only a few days to reach that goal this year! We have spent time weeding in our community garden and have done a mini inquiry on paper airplanes as well.

This Friday will be our first speech. The kids were given the information last Friday and are to prepare a speech about their summer vacation. I've given them a form to fill out and have encouraged them to put their information on notecards and practice in front of a camera. They are then to watch their "game film" and try again until they feel comfortable. I've attached some videos I modeled in class for them to model their speech after.

Have a great week!
