    Default Show and Tell Ideas -kindergarten/first grade

    I remember my Mom searching her purse on the way into school on show and tell day. I thought I might come up with ideas ahead of time for my son. Any ideas?

    There's always a favorite book or toy. Maybe a souvenir from a trip you have taken so that he can talk about the trip itself?

    Matthew's preschool class will begin doing show and tell next week. The teacher's rule is that the item has to correspond to the letter that they are working on that week (next week is M). Maybe choosing a letter will spark ideas?

    Reichen's first will be his "yellow belt" from martial arts that he just got.

    I am entertaining the Ukraine flag or his orange Yuchenko scarf and the fight of democracy in Ukraine...

    I can't wait to see what other are doing...

    I thought of you today jessica as I was in his "meet the teacher" and wondered a similiar question.

    Default Jessica have you gotten any ideas????

    Our yellow belt is not in yet so we so far have done
    Riechen's AWESOME camping vest, it has nooks and crannies and pockets to hold a compass, red flag (if you are lost), id...it is FUN!!!! and then he put on his pirate hat from our trip.

    Just this past monday I had him take in this rain stick that I have made from a dead cactus in chile...it is HUGE but the sound is so pretty. I cringed with him taking it that something could go wrong and wanted to say "don't let anyone touch it"...but swallowed that and told him if anyone wanted to play with it they could just don't let it bang on the floor!!!!

    I was hoping you had ideas that I coudl learn from.

    I remember one show and tell as a child and I honestly took an EARTHWORM...I was obsessed with them as a young child and how they bounced up and down, I remember the night before playing with it at the dinner table :)

    Not only does she have to bring something that starts with that week's letter, but we have to hide it in a bag or box and she provides "clues" for her buddies to guess what her share is.

    My oldest did a birdsnest she found a few years ago, toys were pretty popular too ;)

    We also did a macaw feather but that only works if you own one LOL :D

    I know some kids in my girls classes over the years brought in live pets :o

    An earthworm?!!! :)

    My daughter has taken in a book, a talking doll (it speaks Chinese), mini album from a trip to Hongkong (specifically made for her to take to school), a little purse that she "made," a really neat folding cube toy thing--I can't really describe it. I can't remember what else she's taken. We usually scrounge around for something the night before or the morning of, so we're not all that inspired. We look for small-ish items that either have special meaning for her, are unusual, or that she's obsessed with for the moment. Sometimes, we do need to redirect her selections, but frankly, so long as she picks something by the time we need to leave, we usually let her choose whatever she wants.

    Default A is for ANTLERS

    Our neighbor girl across the street called and asked
    my husband if she could borrow some antlers.

    (My husband goes hunting quite frequently and he brings
    home antlers that he finds.)

    She had to bring the "Show-and-Tell" item to school
    in a bag. Then she had to provide the class with 3 clues
    about her item.
