A fun thing about third grade is being able to compete in the speech festival.
Practicing her poem. Sophie’s expressive eye-brows kill me! (some people say that’s how they tell my girls apart). Nice job Soph, that’s not a short poem.
I have to say, I didn’t know how they would do with this challenge. They could memorize well, but articulation isn’t the easiest for them… speaking Cantonese until 3 1/2 before learning English, and having some twin language going on, they’ve had to work hard with their English annunciation, so I’m proud of my public speakers!
Her sis was making her laugh, lol.
Yae Sage! She also did a good job and won out of her class. She went on to the next level then spoke a little faster and didn’t make the time limit (58 seconds, she needed 1 minute). Bummer, too bad they didn’t let her try again since she was so close. Oh well, she’s a winner in my book!
