  • This week I am conferencing with students concerning their Wax Museum pose, costume, and props. Students should have memorized by now their Catchy Beginning, Childhood, and Adult Years and working on adding Older Years and Wrap-up. The speech in its entirety should be memorized by Friday.
  • The dress rehearsal for the Wax Museum will be Tuesday, May 14. The students will dress in their costumes and present their speeches to the class—they will be graded (speech presentation, costume/props, and written speech). Memorizing a speech takes time and practice. We will start to memorize our Wax Museum speeches this week. At school the students will be taught the fine art of speech memorization—starting small and adding a little at a time. Students will practice with partners at school, but MUST also practice at home. To create a costume, items borrowed or found around the house can be used. Good Will at Kendig Square is also a good resource if need be. Wax Museum event will be held May 17 with two showings: 10:30-11:00 and 2:00-2:30.


  • Students received a half sheet U.S. study guide –quiz (4-O Monday, 4-G Tuesday). Students also have completed a map of the Northeast region with its 11 states. There will be a quiz in the near future–BONUS (optional): also knowing each state’s capital:)
