The sooner students begin speaking publicly, the more confident communicators they will become! "My First Speech about Me" is an upper-elementary activity that teaches students the basics of informative speaking. They will learn the parts of a speech, how to outline and draft a speech, and deliver the information with confidence. The best part is they are talking about themselves so there is no need for extensive research-- they already have the information! The idea is to get kids TALKING in front of their peers. The activity also touches on thesis statements and transitions. It includes "beginner speaker" FAQs and introduces them to visual aids. An easy-to-grade speech rubric is included.
This 9 page file is the perfect back to school get-to-know-you activity for any class size! Modify for various learning and grade levels.
