This post is probably going to sound HORRIBLE to nonteachers, but I'm hoping other primary teachers will understand. I am drowning in drawings, cards, homemade jewelry, etc., from my first graders. Please don't get me wrong. I love, love, love all of it. I wear the paper necklaces. I pin up the pictures. But the accepting of these sweet gifts is truly cutting into learning time, and I'm not sure what to do about it. I'm being given at least 10 items a day and they all want me to show the class what they've made (which I sometimes do and sometimes don't). FYI: I don't have a regular show and tell time. We have other opportunities to share, like reading a book aloud to the class or special times when we bring a "sharing box" of personal items (start of the year activity). I'm also running out of places to put everything. Help! What do you do?
