P2 students have been reading the big book, My Friend, Oscar, which is about friendships. In this activity, students present their friend with a series of short answer questions. In the preparation for this activity, the students were guided by a worksheet that helped them interview their friend for key answers.
Students practice presenting with their friend working on their enunciation skills, volume, and expression. These skills develop with time and confidence. This activity also deepens their friendships, as well as gives them a skill set to use when they meet a new friend, or classmate (for next year!).
We will try using the iPads to video some similar activities so students can have greater control over their video, location, timing, video angle, and to use some of the editing features of iMovie. This will build their technology skills and confidence, especially peer-to-peer support and teaching each other.
This video is a collection of the student pairs from this P2 class. I’m very proud of their risk-taking, collaboration and success!
