Clip to ScrapBook #3

purpose for doing share in my classroom is to get the students used to speaking in front of their peers (oral language skills). In the beginning, I model share with them--students are not allowed to bring in toys--and they are encouraged to share "news", etc.--I have done it both ways--assigned each student a day or had a sign-up sheet each week. If it is your share day, you share during morning meeting in the "share chair" -- students can only start when everyone is attentive--when they are done talking, they will say, "I am ready for questions/comments"--each share is only allowed 5 questions/comments--

As the year goes on, we talk a lot about had to be sure we add important information to our share--I don't love doing it because we are so pressed for time these days, but I learn a lot about my students and there is real value in being comfortable speaking to a group
