December Show and Tell

December 4th, 2020

Show and Tell has always been a dilemma for me. The kids love to bring things from home and show them, but have nothing to tell the other children. They stand up awkwardly in front of their peers holding up a toy from home and say, “I don’t know” over and over. The idea behind show and tell is for the children to get comfortable presenting in front of their peers and for their peers to learn to ask good questions.

Our Show and Tell for December is to bring in items that have Christmas meaning to the students. The children must be able to talk about the item. Common questions are:

-Where did you get it?

-How long have you had it?

-What do you do with it?

-What is it’s job?

-What is it’s name?

If you would like to talk with your child about their object and help them to have information to share with their peers, I am happy to have Christmas themed Show and Tells coming in for the next few weeks!
