First Grade Assembly
Posted 04/02/2014 02:00PM

Each month a different grade level takes the lead for an assembly. This month the first graders had their chance to hold an assembly on Friday, March 21st to highlight one of our school ESLRs(Expected Student Learning Results), communication. The students focused on four aspects of communication: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. They relayed their messages about communication through music, poems, invovies, and skits. The first graders took the audience on a journey through the history of communication. They started off with a communication bang by entering the SPAH holding signs that showed different ways we have communicated through time all while dancing to the beat of Led Zepplin’s “Communication Breakdown.”The students then showed their communication skills by performing four skits. First the showed how people used to communicate using tin can phones and now hard that was to hear and now we have cell phones to talk clearly to people around the world. They showed how people used to receive mail through the pony express and the amount of time that would take. Then they followed that up by showing how easy and fast email is for us to use today. Next, they showed how cavemen would communicate by drawing pictures on cave walls and now we can send tweets to share our work with people around the world. Finally, the first graders showed how people would communicate by reading the newspaper but now we can watch live TV to find out all of our news. The students did an awesome job showing the school how to communicate. I know I have become a better communicator because of them. They hope you will love communicating as much as they do!
