“Writing & Public Speaking Activities for Little Kids” allow students to work on their writing and interpersonal communication skills. These activities will also build students’ confidence when speaking in front of a group. Teachers may want to take this opportunity to discuss public speaking vocabulary, such as volume, rate, eye contact, articulation, and clarity. These activities are perfect to use as ice-breakers, warm-ups, group work, centers, or time fillers!
**Activities are labeled LEVEL 1 or LEVEL 2 on the top right of each page.
Level 1 activities are most suitable for 1st & 2nd grade and require shorter, less detailed answers and explanations. Teachers may prompt students to elaborate on their answers by asking “Why?” or “How?”
Level 2 activities are most suitable for 3rd -5th grade and require more detailed explanations.
**Activities that are only provided for Level 2 (see list below) can be simplified for younger students (teacher’s discretion). Feel free to modify activities for your little speakers!
