**Activities:**

*Warm Up*: Teacher will go over the vocabulary words with the students and get students to participate to find out if they know what each word means. Students will first finish their previous assignment. They were told to write a story that included four random objects that they were given, and four vocabulary words. The teacher will make sure to emphasize that the worksheet is to be a short story and not just sentences. Therefore, the teacher will write on the board what a story consists of. For example, all stories have a beginning that catches the readers attention, the middle has details that talk about the plot and climax, and a conclusion that contains a resolution.*New Information:*Students will open up to page 60 in their textbooks. The teacher will then explain that the students will each go around taking a turn to read aloud the bullet points. The teacher will make sure to describe the bullet points as they go around. Since the section is separated into three areas, the teacher will have the students complete these steps on their own using their warm-up worksheet.- Step 1: Plan your Oral Response: After students read aloud each bullet point, they will be asked to use the bullet points that the text provides and do them with their personal short stories.
- Step 2: Practice Your Oral Response: After students read aloud each bullet point, they will be put into groups and asked to follow the bullet points in preparation for their oral presentations.
- Step 3: Present Your Oral Response: After students read aloud each bullet point, they will have the chance to write down the major points that they will be presenting on.
- Step 4: Teacher will then write on the blackboard what good oral presentation etiquette is. The teacher will ask the students to give their ideas on what they believe a person giving the presentation should look like and how the audience members should be acting. The teacher will make sure that the students follow these guidelines during the presentation process.
- Step 5: Students will be able to choose a number from the box, which shows the order in which they will present. Then they will give their presentations on the stories that they have created. The teacher will make sure to give the students feedback on their presentations, and guide them through the presentation. The teacher will give the students candy at the end of each presentation as recognition for getting through their first oral presentations.

**Closing:**

Teacher will ask students to write on a separate sheet of paper, what they felt they did good during the presentation, and what do they think they need improvement on.

**Homework:**

Students will be asked to write one sentence for each vocabulary word that shows that they know the definition of the word provided.
