This week for our poem, we focused on emphasizing (which was also an interesting word we placed in our word collector) various words in the poem to help our voice during reading. We read the poem in a boring voice, as well as our excited voices. We decided as a class that it actually was harder to read in a boring voice than in the exciting voice!
Below is video of the class reading the poem using their boring voice and then emphasizing important words in an exciting voice! I have to admit it's a little hard not to laugh when they are reading in a boring voice. They do such a great job of keeping it one tone and yes, very boring!
