Public Speaking – Let’s Talk

This course, aimed at students in Grades 2-3, is designed to help students develop their oral communication skills. The power of words and the presentation of those words cannot be underestimated, in fact, “oral communication” is one of the four strands of language arts on the Ontario Report Card.

Using a wide variety of activities and games, students will learn:

Speak with confidence and ease in several situations

Students will be taught how to write prepared speeches including research skills, correct speech format and language usage.

We will pay close attention to language usage including correct grammar and word choice which will help students improve their oral language

We will use our small group setting to help students develop their confidence and build up their speaking skills
