Mrs. Brooke Williams « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Please see our calendar for important dates!  Check out our April newsletter below for important information.

Tropicana Speeches are coming up!  This is an exciting opportunity for the children to refine their skills of developing a speech and effectively communicating orally.  I am going to walk them through each step to ensure confidence and a positive outcome.  I have given the Tropicana timeline below.  Most of this will be done in class, but your help at home will be vital to the success of your child's speech.  Please be diligent in following this timeline.  You can use YouTube as a resource for children giving effective speeches, so your child can see what makes a good oral presentation.  The first step is picking a topic.  Please help them pick a topic that they are passionate and knowledgeable about, as this will help them do their best.

April 8th--Topic approval sheet must be filled out by this date.  This is something the children will complete solely at home.

April 10th--Plan sheet completed.  This is something they will have enough time to complete in class, but if they do not use their time in class, they will have to complete it at home.

April 15th--Speech written entirely.  This is something they will work on a little bit in class, but this is mostly to be done at home with your guidance.

April 21st--Notecards completed.  They will have a little bit of time in class, but this also needs to be completed at home.

April 24th--Dress Rehearsal.  This is their practice day.  They will practice their speech in class.

April 29th--Speech Day.  The children will complete their speech in front of judges for their final score and to see if they move onto the next level.

 

We are almost finished with Unit 5, The American Revolution, in Social Studies.  They have completed a book about our reading of The American Revolution, in class.  They will be completing a culminating project and test for Unit 5.  In Language Arts, we have finished "Because of Mr. Terupt", and now we are moving onto a classic.  "The Little Prince" is not a book they would choose to read themselves, but it ends up being one of their favorites.  If you haven't read this French classic, you should!  Of course, they are writing their hearts out as well!

The students have a regular list of spelling words as well as words from their words to learn list for the week of March 23rd.  Here is the list of regular words.:

1.  sweet

2.  suite

3.  pray

4.  prey

5.  poll

6.  pole

7.  waste

8.  waist

9.  manor

10.  manner

Please let me know if you need anything at all.  I am here to help your child be the best he or she can be, and that takes teamwork.   

Sincerely,

Brooke Williams
