This week students received information about researching and preparing for speeches in Week 5. Hopefully students have used this week to choose a topic and have begun deciding on what key ideas or information they would like to share with their audience. Using the planning sheet at this point will help to get these ideas in order. Next week we will spend some time looking at what makes a good speech - attention grabbing introduction, information in the middle and thoughtful ending - so students can begin drafting their speeches at home. We will not have spelling homework while students are foccused on their speeches however reading and Mathletics will continue.
This week we began 2 more experiments - growing bacteria and dissolving eggs - it's really exciting to hear everyone's observations and predictions and we are looking forward to seeing how these unfold.
Have a great weekend :)
