Autobiography For Kids – How To Prepare Children
Once the write up is ready, you must start preparing your kids for the speech. Begin a few days in advance. Make sure your kids understand the matter first. This way, they can speak in their own words and stay rooted to the context even if they forget the lines. Make them learn their lines in front of a mirror, with expressions. 3 lines a day is sufficient if kids find it boring. Appreciate them for their efforts. This encourages them to perform better.
