Hello. I wanted to start doing "show and tell" in my pre-k classroom but I am looking for more ideas. I would like to stick to a theme. So far, i have:
1. Family picture show and tell
2. Favorite toy day
3. Show-and-tell about something that symbolizes Spring (or Winter, Fall, etc.)
If you have any other ideas, please share them. Also, if you do show and tell in your classroom, how many kids per day do you have and also how do you decide who is going each day?? Thank you for your help.
We do show-and-share on Fridays and the kids (well, the ones who remember) bring in something that starts with the letter of the week. They bring it up to the front, tell us what it is, and we ask them a couple of questions (what color is it? Where did you get it? Who gave it to you?), then they get to walk around the circle and SHOW it to their friends (don't touch, just look). We have 15 kids who come on Fridays, but don't usually have more that 6-7 who bring in something. It takes about 10 minutes.
Music theme - musical instruments, books about music, etc... Art or picture theme - a picture from home, or a piece of art. The art can be store-bought, or something they made. Have them explain the history of the piece. Favorite book Career (jobs) theme - Something from your parent's job. Or, just something from a grown-up job. What do they want to be when they grow up?
