Oral Language Presentations

 

Below is the schedule for the Oral Language Presentations for the year.  Remember, your child will give 4 presentations. Each presentation must be from a different category.  The numbers next to the dates represent the students’ numbers that they were assigned in class. For example, if your child’s number is 11 in the class, they will present on 9/13, 10/25, 1/17, and 3/6. Presentations are always expected to be done on the Friday they are due. Since all students have plenty of warning about their due date, there are no extensions. Sometimes field trips or substitutes will cause slight changes to the schedule.

If your topic is out of the ordinary, please discuss and make arrangements with your teacher a week prior to your presentation day. If you create a Google Slide presentation, please share it with your teacher before your day to present. Powerpoint is not an acceptable program to use.

Oral Language Presentations (OLPs)

As part of our oral language program, each child will be responsible for preparing 4 2-3 minute oral presentations during the school year. There are 5 options of presentation topics. Each student will choose 4 of the 5.  They cannot repeat a topic option.  

This program is most successful with parent involvement and support.  Please help your child to explore topic possibilities, prepare, and practice his/her presentation.  This program strengthens oral language abilities, presentation skills, and self-esteem. The following information lists the topic options and ideas.
