Items that Start with Z for Show and Tell

Show and Tell Advice From a Teacher

1. When choosing an item to bring in it is not necessary to purchase one. Bring in something that you own at home or borrow from a friend.

2. Never bring or send in an item that is of great value or is irreplaceable. Children break or lose things easily and anything you may send to school could get lost.

3. Make sure items that you send in can be carried by your child independently. You may be there to help them carry their item in but chances are that they will have to carry it out on their own at the end of the day. They will also have to be able to carry it to their classroom at share time. If your item can fit in a backpack that is even better.

4. If your child’s item doesn’t fit in their backpack with all of their things send a plastic reusable bag to carry your item to and from school so it doesn’t get wrecked.

5. Let your child help pick their item out. Read the list to them and see if they can think of any of the things on the list that they have and want to bring in. This will help them to have ownership and excitement over the item they are picking out.

6. Have your child practice sharing about their item at home. This will help them to know what to say and what they want to share about their item ahead of time.

7. Make sure items are appropriate for school and the classroom grade level. What is appropriate in preschool may be much different than what is appropriate in third grade.
