Students gave "How to" Demonstration Speeches. The speeches were used as a culminating activity to assess and to observe skills. It was a great way to observe which students could apply the several skills that they have been learning and which students might still need practice or intervention! Movies were made using FlipCam and iMovie.

Skills that we have been practicing:
1. Time Order Words
2. Using and Writing 4 Types of Sentences
3. Giving Directions
4. Listening to Directions
5. Writing Directions
6. Author's Purpose - Speaker's Purpose
7. Teamwork- Supporting Each Other 
8. Dialogue
9. Performing & Speaking
10. Conversation Rules
11. Sequencing
12. Fluency
13. Comprehension
14. Vocabulary
15.  Expression

My mom taught English, English Literature, Speech and Oral Communications for 25+ years at the Upper Sandusky High School, in Upper Sandusky, Ohio! Now she is retired but teaching the PSEO (College) Speech Class for Marion Tech at the Upper Sandusky High School. I wanted to thank her for helping me with the outline for the demonstration speeches. Spending time with her, hearing her stories and seeing her excitement and enthusiasm towards her content, inspired me to challenge my 2nd graders to be as smart as high school/college students! GUESS WHAT- They did it! I am so proud of my 2nd graders!
