Prop Talk : Nursery - II

The use of good visual aids - especially physical 'props' which children can hold and touch – is one of the best techniques for adding interest, humour and variety to presentations and public speaking. Children remember more of what they are told if the experience is multi-sensory, rather than just listening to spoken words or reading printed words on a screen. Visual aids, particularly 'props', have a physical presence, texture, feel and perhaps smell also, which can create powerful and memorable metaphors.

To motivate students to be able to speak confidently in front of an audience, Dharav High School, Jaipur organised an online activity ‘Prop Talk’ for classes Nursery to II on Friday, 20 May 2022.

Students spoke on different topics like my favourite toy, things in my pencil box, things in my school bag, things in my Mom’s kitchen and purse. This activity served to enhance their confidence, vocabulary, creativity of converting thoughts into words. The activity was well appreciated.
