      An “Extra, Extra!!” is an oral presentation. Your child is going to teach something that is interesting to them  They will collect information related to their topic, organize it, write about it, create an artifact and teach others.

      Here’s what your child should have ready when they present.

      1.  Written report- This may be written by your child, typed on the computer by your child,  or an adult may write down what the child tells you to write. The report should be written in their own words, not copied from other sources. Your child should turn in their report before they begin presenting.

      2.  Artifact- This creation should show something about your child's topic. It can be a poster, diorama, mural, photo display, scrapbook, model, power point (this is NOT the same as your written report) or a handout. Your child can be as creative as they wish.  The artifact should be made by the child.  

      3.  Oral report- This should be informative and well rehearsed. As your child rehearses, think about these things: eye contact with the audience, loud and clear voice, good posture, appropriate length (5-15 min) and the presentation should be given from note cards, picture prompts or memory (not word-for-word from paper).

      Your child should be able to  answer questions at the end of their “Extra, Extra!!”

      Don’t panic!!!  This really is fun for your child and while they are having fun they will be gaining valuable skills in reading, writing, research, planning, problem solving, self-discipline, and presentation.

      Offer your child support, but allow them to make their own choices on the topic and the presentation. The work should be their own.
