Tips for Parents and Carers:
Remind your kid/s when they’re doing performative public speaking to:
- Slow down. Rushing makes you hard to understand.
- Breathe deep and relax. This will calm your nerves.
- Speak loudly and clearly enunciate your words so the audience can hear you. Try to speak to the back of the room.
- Don’t hold your paper in front of your face. We want to see you!
- Don’t be monotone. Add some character to your voice, with changes in pitch, tone and speed. Remember to pause between sentences.
- Lined paper or notebook
- Writing pen or pencil
