Oral Book Report Tips

  • Practice a lot- especially in front of a mirror.
  • Don't procrastinate! Spread your book report out.
  • If a costume is needed, pick a fun one that will ease your nervousness. If you need to make a visual aid, start early.
  • Making eye contact- don't stare at the floor or ceiling! Look at your audience.
  • Talk loudly. Don't mumble, stutter, or whisper. Using an accent or fun voice will also add effect to your report.
  • Choose a book that you enjoy or you think is interesting. If the book is boring, you will not be as motivated.
  • Add fun! Make jokes in your report, or say something funny!
  • If you are nervous, take deep breaths before you perform. Try not to look scared. If you can, go first to get it over with.

With these tips, it is guaranteed that your book report is going to be the best one in your class!
