Nervous about a presentation to the class
exampleimage

I am feeling: nervous

What happened to make me feel like this?

I have to do a presentation at school next week

Why is I have to do a presentation at school next week making me feel nervous?

I might look silly and get embarrassed and go red in front of my whole class

I am feeling nervous because I might look silly and get embarrassed and go red in front of my whole class

The reasons why i feel this way: 

because I am pretty shy and get very nervous when I have to talk to a group because I go red a lot and kids laugh and tease me because I might say the wrong thing because I am not very good at presentations

The reasons other people give to tell me my thinking may be wrong:

Other kids probably feel the same way if I prepare i wont sound so silly I don’t always go red and get embarrassed it might not be as bad as I think

What other things are going on that might make this situation seem worse:

Some of the kids in my class are really good at doing presentations so the teacher will expect lots from all of us

What are all the different things that might happen – good, bad and most likely:

good – I wont get time to do my presentation

Bad – I will forget what i have to say go red and everyone will laugh at me

Most likely – I will do ok and might go red or might not

What would I tell a friend who felt this way:

prepare your presentation, have something for the kids to look at to take away attention from you if you do go red and just try your very best
