*Please make sure that your child practices
what to say. It is ok if he or she has note
cards, but they should not read from them
whole time.

We will complete the WRITTEN REPORT in class.  Be prepared to PRESENT your project to the class in an Oral Presentation.  This will be graded for Science grade, Speaking Grade, and Research Grade.  We will be working on the research in class as well for those of you who do not have access to computers.

If you need anything to finish this project or have questions, please text or leave a message for the teacher.

OralPresentationRubric-Primary_000

Here is the rubric I will be using for the poster presentation.  The grade will be used as part of the Speaking grade on the report card. The poster is not graded, it is being used so that the students have something to present to the class. The presentation is what is being graded.  However, the poster should include at LEAST 5 DIFFERENT things that your child can discuss.  For example:
1.  A family photo/ list of family      2.  A pet photo/ discuss the pet.  3.  A sport/hobby    4.  What I want to be when I grow up
5.  My favorite (food, song, movie, place)  6.  When I was little I ... 
These are just some examples.  Your child is welcome to use the same information that is in the All About Me Homework Packet, but presented on a poster paper for ease of presenting it to the class.
 
Common Core Standard is Speaking and Listening 2.4  Tell a story or recount experiences with appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details, speaking audibly in coherent sentences.
 
Please have them practice their presentation at home several times, so that they get the best grade possible.
