Oral Intrepretation Festival

You may be wondering…. What is Oral Interpretation?  Here is the scoop:

Oral Interpretation Festival is an enrichment activity where students,0 Kindergarten through 5th grade, practice public speaking skills.

All students are encouraged to participate!!  Coaching sessions are designed to encourage the participant to become confident, dynamic, and effective public speakers.  We will assist the students in memorization, stage speaking and small performing suggestions.

Here is how it works:

Literary Selections: Students choose a literary selection such as a poem, speech, monologue, excerpt from book or play, song lyrics or a piece they have written!  The participants memorize the selection to perform at Shaffer’s Oral Interpretation Festival.  

Preforming: Students may present as individuals or groups.  Groups may have up to 5 students maximum.  Your group will perform with the HIGHEST grade level involved.  Example: If your group has a kindergarten and 3rd grader in it, the group will perform with the 3rd grade level cluster.

Time: The performances are not to exceed 5 minutes.

Participation: Students participate in grade level clusters:   Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.

Awards:   The Festival is competitive:  Each student is judged on their use of speaking and dramatic skills to present literary selections with spoken words.  Each grade level cluster is awarded a first, second and third place. The top 3 students/groups from each cluster move on to perform and compete in the Area Oral Interpretation Festival.
