Are your elementary and middle schoolers terrified to give an oral presentation to the class? Elementary and middle schoolers understand and demonstrate at least three strategies to decrease stress levels while making oral presentations. They collaborate in small groups to research ways to decrease their stress levels. They use PowerPoint presentations to present their findings to the class. While designed for older students, this could easily be adapted to lower grades.
This lesson on stressed and unstressed syllables includes several activities designed to give young readers practice identifying the correct stressing in words. Begin the lesson by studying Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" as a model then test students by having them identify the stressed syllable in several words from the poem and finally end with a team activity where half the class faces off with the other half to write words correctly on the board.
