Show and Tell

Show and Tell really is a great foundation to build on with public speaking.  Young or old, speaking comes a lot easier when you are comfortable and know what your talking about.

This simple warm-up activity can really boost your student participation during a public speaking class.

Some of the advantages of having a show and tell include;

  • learn to speak and listen
  • learn how to be an audience and introduce themselves
  • learn how to ask inquiry based questions
  • learn to make connections between student responses
  • anticipate and observe
  • practice critical reasoning skills
  • practice storytelling
  • learn same and different
  • use vocabulary- doll, computer, toy car, puppet
  • use descriptive language
  • say thank you
  • increase confidence
Here is a quick video of “Show and Tell” in action =)

Have a Great Weekend!
