Oral language is such an important skill for every age group and when it comes to the bigger kids (year 3-6), show and tell is probably not going to cut it and some students are just not ready to jump straight into speeches or debating.
I have created this resource to use with my students to make speaking fun! It makes them think and express their ideas verbally. It’s also quite open ended and does allow for different learning (and speaking) styles to attempt the tasks in their own way. Ties fantastically to persuasive and narrative writing topics as well!
Once they have the hang of how to do the tasks and are building confidence with their speaking, I then get them to start to focus on their ’presenter skills’. We work on eye contact, not fidgeting, facial expressions, use of tone and intonation.
The entire pack is colour coded with the cards matching the instruction cards. There are 24 different cards for each activity and 6 different activities! Download the preview for an example of the each of the activities.
Keep an eye out as I will be adding more activities to this pack throughout the year to keep the kids interested and motivated!!
There are two files included in the zip file. One is the resource with English spelling, one with American spelling.
