    Oral Presentations


    Every week, students will give an oral presentation on a given topic or project from class.  Use the "Writing" outine page to form your presentation.  See the video at the bottom for a great example of a presentation.

    We are going to start on a very simple topic.  Students will be presenting their “All About Me” book to the class.

    The “All About Me” book is due ON THE DAY OF THE PRESENTATION.  Students will tell us about the things that they wrote in their books.  It is helpful to practice this before their assigned day.  Help them read the words in the book and to remember what they wrote.
