4th grade is enjoying having Mrs. Brockbank at our school. This week she joined our class and taught students how to add sound effects to a story based on the word choice and pictures that the story used. They used drums, clackers, bells, sticks, whistles, and many other instruments to create a variety of sounds. It was great to see the students use their creativity to put their own spin on the story!
We love telling stories in speech! We work on using the seven story grammar elements (character, setting, problem, feeling, action, conclusion, end feeling) to get all the parts of our story, using correct grammatical sentence structure, making inferences, answering questions about the story, problem solving, learning vocabulary, etc. There are so many things we learn from stories in the speech room!
