DD7 has entered a story telling contest at her school tomorrow. Her story is approx. 5 minutes long and she will have no aids at all. She will be speaking in front of several hundred people. She is a very brave 7 year old girl but also gets overwhelmed very easily. I am worried that the whole thing will be too much for her and she will not be able to remember her story. Last year (when she 6) she was determined to enter the contest but I felt she simply wasn't mature enough. I told her....NEXT YEAR... Well next year is here and of course she remembered what I said. DD7 is in a regular classroom but has ADHD as well as other issues . I hope it goes ok tomorrow and pray she can get through it without getting too overwhelmed by the whole experience. Please send pixie dust her way. Her name is Gracyn. I am also posting this on the disABILITIES board. Thank you Suzy V.
