SLC Preparation : Practice Makes Perfect

Last week, Grade 4 was busy preparing the Student Led Conference held on March 24 -25. Students worked in pairs to practice their presentation. While one student was presenting his or her conference, another student acted as an audience. They also worked together to time the presentation to make sure that the presentation didn't last too long or too short. They did this practice as a part of their preparation for the conference. 

From this activity students learn to show cooperation and communication skills. They also demonstrate some learner's profiles such as open minded, risk taker, caring and communicator. 
Students were also given choices to choose 3 pages of their portfolios and 3 other works from different subjects to be presented during the conference. 
Here are some photos taken during the SLC practices.
