June Blog: 8 Tips for Kids on How to Nail Presentations in the Classroom

8 Tips for Kids on How to Nail Presentations in the Classroom

This month's blog is 8 Tips for Kids on How to Nail Presentations in the Classroom .

Has your child ever come home with a presentation to craft and deliver in the next few days? Do you wonder how you can inspire your little ones to upskill themselves and provide excellent presentations?

Delivering presentations is a vital skill for children to develop, enabling them to express themselves confidently, articulate their ideas effectively, and engage with others in various academic and social settings. Presentations teach children how to organize their thoughts, structure information coherently, and communicate their message clearly and compellingly.

Guest Blogger Ashish Arora is Co-Founder of SketchBubble, a leading provider of result-driven, professionally built PowerPoint Graphics templates. Travelling the world to gather new creative ideas, he has been working in the digital marketing space since 2007 and has a passion for designing presentations.



App of the Month

Every month we are going to feature a different, and hopefully FREE, iPad/iPod/iPhone/Android educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page.

The App of the Month for June is Play and Learn Engineering by PBS Kids ( iOS and Android ).



Play and Learn Engineering is an educational, fun-filled app that helps your child learn through play. Kids can explore and learn engineering concepts with games that grow with them. Experiment, problem solve, and unlock new challenges along the way. Design machines and roller coasters, build with robots, and explore obstacle courses. Add to your child’s distance learning by introducing them to games with simple engineering tools.

Make STEM concepts fun at home. These early learning games for preschoolers help your child develop a better understanding of the world around them. Our app empowers your preschooler to test science and engineering concepts and solve problems on their own. Use early learning tools designed so the app grows with your child.

Our family games encourage parents and children to learn together. The parent section is an award-winning tool that helps you guide your child’s learning both in and outside the app.
