Amazing work, Delilah! I remember trying to get out of going to school, but my mom could alllways tell when I was fibbing. Almost like she tried the same thing when SHE was a kid…
You brought this to life!

YOU HAD MY ATTENTION AS SOON AS YOU STARTED. You did an amazing job at describing all your symptoms. I really thought you were sick until I too realized it is Saturday too. YOU DID AMAZING all around. You used your loud voice to tell the story. You had on-point body and facial features. The color of your robe made the performance pop. You CAME TO LIFE telling the piece. I am very impressed and you should be proud of your dedication.

Excellent job with this performance Delilah! Not only is this performance very engaging an entertaining to watch, you incorporated well-rehearsed acting skills into it as well.

Hey there Delilah! You did such a good job presenting this poem about being sick. You were very confident and presented with very funny expressions.
