Qualities of a good speech

When doing a speech there is certain things you need to do so that you present the speech good. The first quality of a good speech is showing emotion. For example while you're saying your speech you can share a personal story to go along with the speech. When you share a story it will make the audience understand more. Another quality of a speech is having a good positive message or theme because why would someone have a negative theme for their speech? Talking about positive things will help people and they will remember it and that's what you want.The last thing you should think about when writing a speech is having a good introduction because you want to catch the audiences attention. You don't want your audience to be bored so you have to start off good. I hoped these qualities helped with your next speech. What are some other qualities you know about a good speech?

Book clubs

I think book clubs are actually fun because it's another to share your feelings about the book. You can ask questions with your group. I am enjoying book clubs because like I said you get to know how other people feel about the book. I like the book I'm reading because it became interesting once different things started to happen. What I'm learning about the holocaust is the officers were cruel people and they made people work and treated them badly and didn't care. What I'm learning about life is treat people the way you want to be treated. What do you think about book clubs?

Earth day weekend

This weekend was kind of fun for me why? Because on Saturday there was a earth day event for Best Of Berwyn and it was fun. When I got to the park district they gave everyone green shirts that said think green on it. Then we went outside to the park we did the manniquine challenge and the Harlem shake which was fun. Then we got in groups of 6 or 7 to start cleaning up around the area we had to clean until it was 12 and we had to be at the park district at 9 in the morning. When it was around 12 everyone met up at another park district and we took pictures and ate pizza which was really good. Then we all went our separate ways. How was your weekend?

Butterfly Project

Title- To Olga
By-Alena Synková

Listen!
The boat whistle has sounded now
And we must sail
Out toward and unknown port.

We'll sail a long, long way
And dreams will turn to truth.
Oh, how sweet the name of Morocco!( country in Africa)
Listen!
Now it's time.

The wind sings songs of far away,
Just look up to heaven
And think about the violets.

Listen!
Now it's time.

This text makes me feel better because even though the child was in the camp living a life they didn't want to live they still kept a positive attitude once they left.
