Bring a lunch and water bottle and snack to share. We’ll have a great time practicing and getting to know parents and students from other chapters. This is also a great opportunity to see what other students are preparing to take to the community.

 Christmas Party/Showcase 

Dec 12 is our last meeting before our Christmas break. Invite family and friends from 5:30 – 6:30 as we share the presentations we’ve been working on and enjoy snacks. (Each family should plan to bring a snack to share – healthy, sweet or savory.)

Would anyone like to volunteer to organize and set up the snack table?

 Parent Volunteer Opportunities 

There are still opportunities available to support our chapter. Look over the list under Just for Parents > Parent Volunteers. Some are ongoing while others are just periodic. Take a look and prayerfully consider how the Lord has equipped you and may be calling you to serve. Please contact Yvonne or Ruthie if you would like to volunteer or want more information.

Christmas Stroll Platform 

Our chapter will be strolling the streets Dec 21 from 2-3pm in Old Colorado City, presenting a choral reading with popcorn quotes and Christmas memories. See more detail in Platforms > Platform Opportunities. Contact Yvonne Hagood to sign up.

Beginning Public Speaking Homework (BPS) ages 6-10yrs

1.  Practice reading or reciting your presentation using projection. Practice how you would need to project in a small room, in a large room, or outside. Remember, you don’t want to scream to be louder. That will hurt your audiences’ ears. Project using your diaphragm (tummy muscles).

2.  Memorize Phil 2:3-4 using the sign language and hand gestures Kimberly taught during chapter.

3.  Review the most important public speaking skills on page 13 (or 15). Answers can be found in “Resources” under “BPS Workbook Answers.”

4.  Don’t forget to look for opportunities in the community to share your presentations.

Young Speakers Guild Homework (YSG) ages 11-18yrs

1. Work on the YSG goals you set during chapter.

2.  Be thinking about what presentations you want to bring to the Tournament Practice – Hello My Name Is, Favorite Bible Verse, Interpretation. Everyone should be also sign up for Limited Preparation.
