January Presentations- Due January 25th

Before break, I sent home the outline for our January Presentations. This one is one of my favorites! The kids will be presenting on what they want to be when they grow up! :) Feel free to be creative.


If you notice, at the bottom of the paper, it encourages you to use index cards or cue cards for kids to read off of as notes. Please do not use the outline paper during the presentation. Some of the kids don't need notes at all, and that's fine! Index cards for each line can help remind them of what to say.


Also notice that the outline mentions your child's "visual" they bring can be an outfit they wear to represent what they want to be when they grow up! Again, have fun with this and enjoy practicing with your child. Each month we are blown away at how great they are! Let me know if you have any questions :)
