Learning Tips

(1)

If you’re ever preparing for an oral presentation, ask your child to be your audience when you practice. This will help understand that oral presentations and public speaking are necessary skills in the real world.

(2)

If you’re child is making an oral presentation, encourage them to use a prop. Talk to them about how the prop will make it easier for the audience to take in the information.

(3)

If you’re child is ever stuck on making a prop for an oral presentation, the internet has tons of free resources to print. Have your child help you with the search so that they also develop their researching skills.

(4)

Oral presentations are as nerve-wrecking for many students as they are for most adults. Encourage your child to practice in front of a live person.

(5)

In addition, encourage your child to use index cards, in case they get nervous during their presentation and forget what they wanted to say.
