App

This week for homework students will be writing and recording a poem using the app ChatterPix. The app is free but allows you to take a picture and draw a face on the item and then record your voice.

Play Lines

It is so important that students work on memorizing their play lines. You want to make sure your child memorizes their lines first and then learns when to say them. You can use the article found below to see some helpful tips when memorizing lines. Remember while you might learn best with flash cards, you child might learn better by repeating it out loud. Have patience and have fun!
