Sell, sell, sell!

We just started a new exercise in my Creative After School class.  Over the next couple of weeks students will be working on a persuasive speech or a commercial.  As a warm-up activity I asked each student to find a random item within the classroom and quickly come up with some key selling points.  Students were asked to create a need for the product, discuss how it can benefit the consumer, and deliver their message in an engaging way.

I love how kids minds work!  Check it out!

Crazy Talk G1-2

Having just finished up our Crazy Talk videos, here are the final products!  These kids are amazing!  They wrote their own script, practiced speaking with partners, and record.  It was great watching each child create something all of their own!

Great Job Grades 1 and 2!

Examples Needed – Teacher body language in the classroom

Dear Teachers,

If you are a teacher/educator would you please take a few minutes and respond to this request.  I am in the process of gathering examples of how body language is used in the classroom. The idea is to help create an awareness of the Non-verbal signals that teachers use.  I am looking for examples of body language that may be inhibiting learning, as well as examples of positive teacher body language.  If you would be willing, please give some examples of both positive and non-effective body language that you have either experienced or have observed in the classroom.  You can just leave your information below as a response to this post.

 

Thanks so much!
