Classroom Activities

Special area right now is for enrichment purposes only.
Work will be kept at a minimum in order to reduce the workload for our students working from home.

The following is an assignment that can be chosen to send in for assessment.  They are allowed to choose any one exercise from my assignment options. 
It is not due until April 30th.

We’re listening to Mrs. Terhune’s rendition of Kate Beaton’s King Baby.  In this video, I will explain the importance of doing different voices that suit different characters.

Today’s exercise is for your student to create their own character and the voice that goes with it.  You may send me a short clip of them doing their voice and what their character is.  If you’re unable to provide a video, they can send me a written description answering any of the following questions:
– Who is their character?
– Is the character old or young? 
– Is the voice low and deep?
– High and nasal?
– Whiny?  Fast? Slow?
– Does their character have a speech impediment like a lisp or stutter?
– Do they pronounce certain letters funny?
– Do they have a big vocabulary or small?
Any details they can think of.  Please send any responses to me at terhuner@ivyhawnschool.org or via Remind.

Assignments Due

***If you’d like to choose this as your one assignment, send your responses to Mrs. Terhune, please do so by Apr 30th via video or email to terhuner@ivyhawnschool.org.***
