I’m putting the finishing touches on my school planning over the next week or so, woohoo! It’s been a race to get everything done because the summer has just been so busy. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel just in time to start after Labor Day!
I put these Impromptu Presentation Topic Cards together for my grammar class and thought I’d share for those who may be interested. Although we have a weekly topic schedule, these are a great option for children who don’t have prepared presentations or who have forgotten their presentation. I printed, laminated, cut, and hole-punched the cards, and then put them on a ring. A student who needs a topic can then easily pick an impromptu presentation card. They have a minute or two to think about the prompt, and then they present for about 2 minutes. We used these cards last year also, but I added more prompts for this year.
I love that my students work on presentation skills every week – being able to speak in front of people is so valuable! The children have grown to really enjoy using these topic cards too – it’s always so fun to listen to what they come up with!
