Third term oral presentation: “The Ideal Career”

Third Term Oral Presentation: “The Ideal Career

Your child will be participating in an inquiry-based project involving careers. Each student will carefully choose a career that they believe is the ideal career. Through research, they will find the following information:

  • Career description
  • Qualities and abilities required for the career
  • Location of work
  • Education required
  • Creativity required for the job
  • Salary / Holidays
  • Uniform or dress required for the work

They will find this information through reading, the internet, and possible interviews with people in the particular field of their chosen career. Ms. Mead our school librarian will be assisting our class with the research.

They will then assemble all their research and write an “opinion-based” speech, which will state how their career is the ideal career. Their speech will have three parts: the introduction paragraph, the body of the argument and a concluding paragraph. The length of the written speech will be 3 to 5 paragraphs long.

How can you as a parent help?

  • Assist your child with choosing a career.
  • Help them find the necessary information (research and writing will be done at school)
  • Encourage them to practice their speech at home.

Thank you for your continued support,

Second Term Presentation

Chers parents,

Our second term oral presentation will begin this month.  For the presentation, your child will be teaching the class.  The expectations are that they will choose something that is easy enough to teach, as well as easy enough for the other students to accomplish.  Some examples are “How to make a friendship bracelet”, “how to draw…”,”how to throw a ball”, “how to shuffle” etc…

For details regarding what your child will need to do, what you can do to help, and the dates your child will be presenting, see the following documents:

An activity I am hoping to do with the class is to learn how to say “Merry Christmas” in various languages.  Today they were asked to go home and ask how to say “Merry Christmas” in a language spoken at home or in a language that is spoken among the extended family.  Can you please help your child write this greeting down correctly. They will also need to know how to say it in their language so they can then teach it to the class!

Thank you for your assistance with this activity!

Merci beaucoup!
