4th and 5th grade Oral Reading

Reading literature out loud provides opportunities for students to analyze text, to grow and develop as a performer, to communicate a message to an audience and to perform an artistic creation.  Students have a maximum of six minutes to read a selection of poetry.  Each selection may be one poem, a part of a poem, or a combination of poems.  Selections must be published although the poet may be unknown or anonymous.  There is no minimum time limit.
Event Coach:

4th grade Oral Reading practices will be every Monday from 3:00-4:00, except for the week of October 12th - practice will be on Thursday, October 15th.
