How can I be calm and remember my whole speech for a project?

My teacher had given my class a project and we all finished it. Then she said: "You guys need to write a speech that is about 1 or 2 minutes long and you have to MEMORIZE it!". Okay, she is a really nice teacher! But since she is a gifted teacher, she has to go hard as the Great Wall of China on us!! I have stage fright, and my classmates are scared to memorize the speech, especially my friend since she wrote her speech on 10 note cards! Help! Helping is always appreciated!! How can I be calm and remember the WHOLE speech?! Yikes!!

Go pee right before the class (you usually have to pee when you're nervous) and take deep breaths and focus on the speech. You'll do fine and the class is probably full of your friends, weirdos, and losers who don't care. You'll do great!!!

You are right!! There will be a person in class counting each student if they say, "like" or "um" or "uh" or "wait" or "hold on"...something like that! Gee, I can't believe they have to count people who say those things during presentation/speech time!! :O
