Fortune Teller

This is what I made for my visual reflection. It is called an origami fortune teller, which I’m sure a lot of you used when you were kids. I made one of these because my last speech gave a little bit of information on the history of origami so I thought it would be cool to make one of these.

What I did was write numbers on the outside of the fortune teller, and on the inside flaps I wrote what I have learned during this class, and then under those flaps it tells you exactly how I have improved at each of the four things I wrote on the inside flaps. For example, say you choose the number 3. You open the fortune teller from side to side 3 times, and then you see 2 phrases that tell you what I have learned and what I have improved on throughout the class. You chose one of those two phrases, and say you choose “Becoming a good listener.” You then open that flap and it tells you exactly what this class has done for me in that subject. Under the “Becoming a good listener” flap, it says, “I didn’t think that this speech class would make me a better listener, but it really has, And becoming a better listener has, I believe, made me a better speaker, Listening closely to other speeches had helped me with what I should and shouldn’t do in my speeches.”

That is how my fortune teller works, so if anyone you know is ever debating on whether they should take this class or not, I’ll let them see this fortune teller so they will realize how much you actually learn in this class.

    I am a new student in Candee’s speech class, and I am actually becoming a little excited about it. As I read some of the comments made about the class the anxeity eases up a little. I hope our class has such wonderful experiences as it seems some of the others have had.

    This is really cool. I remember making those when I was younger and it’s interesting to see them used in a different and creative way. I’m also glad to hear that the class was very helpful to you and it makes me look forward even more to taking this speech class.

    I loved making fortune tellers when I was younger. My friends and I would sit around for hours and see who could make one the fastest. But my favorite thing to do was to put funny quotes or jokes inside of them to make my friends laugh. Good times, thank you for reminding me of them with these photos.
