Oral Reports


One of the skills that the students learn in Second Grade is to speak comfortably in front of a group. This is a skill that will become stronger as each child practices and has opportunities to present orally. Most weeks, the students will be asked to prepare a short, oral report on a specific topic. They will present their reports to the class on their assigned days; Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Fridays.



The students will…

1. Prepare a note card with words or phrases that they may need when presenting their report. 

2. Turn these phrases into 5-8 oral sentences. The topic selected must be easy for the children to present.

3. Practice giving the oral report at home to a parent the evening before they are to present.  The students may not read their report from their note card. The words or phrases are to be used as cues only.

4. Come to school prepared with their note card on their assigned oral report day.


Please remember, while the content of these oral reports is important, the objective of these presentations is for your child to become more comfortable speaking in front of others. While the children may be quite nervous the first few times in front of the class, it is exciting to see how confident they become by the end of the year.
