Speech is a word that is linked to the art of speaking in public eloquently with the intention of informing or convincing. Hablar For most children and adults, public speaking is a bad drink. Tremor of hands, sweating, pulse acceleration and, all because we are not used to doing it, that is why we must work this skill as soon as possible, starting at home and continuing in school. Teaching oratory from home to children
At home we can motivate children to tell us their stories and to express their own ideas without answering them, (often we do not leave them).
One way to achieve this is to read stories and stage them, to catch their attention will make them notice us and learn to express themselves little by little, it is also an excellent resource to have a good time with the children and to create emotional bonds between parents and children.
In my family, for example, at Christmas parties, small and old, we prepared
dances, theaters, songs and games,
to then represent ones in front of the others on New Year's Eve, and besides having a great time, this type of family activities They have given an excellent result over time and have been very beneficial for the then more shy children of the house overcome the fear of "making a fool of themselves" and, little by little, as adults have managed to speak in front of others No problem. Speaking in public is learned by speaking in public, therefore, we must motivate children to do so through different activities and games, thus achieving that they learn to debate and defend their ideas. Teaching oratory from school to children
I think that teaching children at school to speak in public is essential, (starting in class in front of the teacher and his classmates). If we manage to create a climate of confidence in which they get used to and do it naturally
through games, poems, tongue twisters, theaters, recitals, etc. It will clearly benefit the little ones in their future life.
If they write, read and write they will be able to structure their ideas and, therefore, help them to know how to explain themselves better when speaking and communicating.
I think that oratory should be given much more importance in school because it is a way to teach children to believe in themselves and boost their self-esteem with all the benefits that entails in their future life, both work and personal.
