Children's day is here and teachers have yet another responsibility to entertain and engage their students on their special day. Most schools conduct programs where teachers perform and students watch. Games and other fun activities too will be part of the celebration. On this D-Day, how about rewarding your students with value education at the beginning of the day so that they will remember your words on this occasion for a lifetime? Here are some children's day speech ideas for teachers.
Anecdotes are the best way to hold attention. Choose a child relevant topic. Build an interesting story around it and narrate it at the beginning of your speech. Topics such as friendship or honesty, ones that children are familiar to hearing but need more light. Once children are attracted to it, draw them into the moral of the story with various other instances.
Reason for celebration
Although this is the conventional way of most children's day speeches, it would be of a good start if you begin recollecting the reason why children's day is celebrated. Maybe you can reframe the sentence interestingly with your lilt. Ask "Does everyone know why children's day is celebrated?" Once the audience responds, elaborate on it and enjoy the interactiveness.
Focus on child problems
This is the best time to enlighten the children about child labour, child abuse and other child-related problems and teach them how to help another child in need. Good habits such as helping blind students write exam, offering education to underprivileged children and other compassionate activities towards their counterparts can be cultivated on this occasion.
Become a child
All teachers have a barrier between them and the children just to retain their respect. For once, let your stern voice lose and talk in a child-friendly manner. Use questions such as 'what is children's day?' 'why do we celebrate children's day?' 'why do teachers entertain on children's day?' and such simple questions that children generally have on their mind. Think from a child's point of view about the hot topics in your school at that time. Work on it and present it in an easy understandable format.
