This Book Talk/Public Speaking covers the most important lessons for children learning how to present in front of a group. It can also be a great activity to end the year with. I have included explanations and examples for the five most vital skills: volume, confidence, expression, eye contact and information. I share many of the techniques I use in my own classroom. I provide you with printouts for speech cards, information cards, and the eye contact strategy. Also included are titles of some of my favorite picture books used to aid in expression. The standards & indicators are included for the 3rd-6th grade objectives met by using this power point's strategies. A rubric is included to make assessing book talks and any public speaking activity you may assign simple. This information will definitely prepare young students for what is to come in their future educational experience. Have Fun With This!
