We have been doing a great job in News Groups the past couple of Fridays, employing our speaking and listening skills to take turns sharing for 2 minutes each.
News Groups is just one of the ways in which we practice our speaking and listening skills at school. They are an integral part of Daily 5 and also covered extensively in our English lessons about Types of Texts and general class discussions in all subjects.
News Groups give us a chance to talk to our peers about topics that interest us, as well as having the option of preparing spoken presentations to share as a Homework option.
Here are some photos of us working together in our groups...
Keep up the fantastic speaking and listening 2G champions!
