This week we are practicing a retell of the book "Brontorina". It's a really cute book about a dinosaur who dreams of being a ballerina, but she doesn't have the right ballet slippers and she is too big for the dance studio.
After reading the book we made a list of key vocabulary from the book that would help with the retell.
We brainstormed the beginning/middle/end as a class and then my students drew it so they could have a visual reminder to practice with. We talked about how to "sketch" a quick drawing so that their time would be spent practicing instead of drawing.
I like them to have a visual prompt as a reminder. What do you use to help your students with oral presentations?
