I just moved from kindergarten to first grade and did not start the year off with sharing time because the other first grade teacher doesn't. We talk casually at the start of each day, with me calling on kids who have something brief to tell me about their life. But these kids are dying to come to the front of the room and share! FYI: I was at a different school last year (higher poverty last year). My kindergartners there had better oral communication skills than my first graders do here--maybe because they shared each week? I don't know. Do any first grade teachers out there do show and tell? I'd like to start it up again. Just wondering how it looks for you in first grade. What are your parameters? No toys? Something related to what you're studying? Something made by the child or found in nature? Questions only from the audience (no comments)? Or would I be the only first grade teacher in the world who does show-and-tell time? Thanks!
