Tips for Show and Tell from a Kindergarten Teacher

*When choosing an item for show and tell be sure to choose an item that isn’t fragile or valuable. If the item you want to send in is either of these things, you can send in a photo instead to ensure it doesn’t get broken or lost.

*Your child can prep what they want to say about their item ahead of time at home. Some things they can share about their item would be why it is important to them, where they got it, why they like it, when they got it, and what they do with it.

*Your child’s item should be able to fit in their backpack or at least be carried on their own. This makes things easier for both your child and their teacher when it comes to bringing the item in and out of the classroom.

*Make sure that the item your child is sending into school is both school and grade level appropriate. If you are unsure or are questioning it check with your child’s teacher ahead of time.

Items that start with I for Show and Tell

*If you are not sure about bringing a specific item into class for show and tell either due to logistics or appropriateness be sure to double check with your child’s teacher. They are almost always willing to answer questions and help.

*Food items make for a great show and tell item and possibly can be brought to share with the class if you check with the teacher first.  They can inform you if homemade snacks can be brought in and of any allergies that may be in the class. Be sure to also send in any extra utensils or paper plates to go with serving your snack if needed.

*A photo is always a great idea to bring in for show and tell. It makes things like carrying items or losing items easier to figure out. Photos of animals, large items, people, and more work great. You can also email your child’s teacher a photo ahead of time that can be shared on a smartboard if this is an option.

*Photos of family members whose names start with the letter I are great options. Some names starting with the letter I include Iirma, Indie, Isaac, Ian, Iris, Ivy, Isabella, Imogen, Isaiah, Irene, Ingrid, Isla, and more.

    1. You can definitely do it that way as well! I think most families do. For children who tend to be more nervous to speak in front of the group it may really help to prep. Both ways are great!
