The school normally just mentions the project idea and the kids have to perform a show and tell on one of these. We chose Seasons.
The school circular mentioned the following:
To identify the three main seasons in India.
To recognize and experience the climate change in the season. (temperature, the sky(clear or cloudy) and the wind).
To know the types of clothing worn.
To know the names of the seasons.
To know the effect of the seasons on us.
Materials we used:
Some old things we collected from old greeting cards or boxes, the wool with the toothpick, the packing of the iphone, Cotton, black pepper.
Glue, sketch pens and scissors.
Yes, we used google for images and we used our last printer ink for printing these 🙂
Make a single page for each season. Use images with small sentences such that the child will be able to just see the image and speak a little about it.
Give it a 3D effect by using puffy stickers suitable to the season images and also by adding a small amount of craft to each page.
Be happy if your three-year old even just points to the image, identifies and relates it to it’s season 🙂
Our finished pages
Craft added here: Add green grass by just stripping a simple green sheet. The packing of the iphone is cut into two clouds and colored with black felt pen. Puffy stickers for rainbow and flowers.
Craft added here: Ice cream stick, small ice cream cones with card paper and pompom, small ice candies with foam, puffy stickers for the cap, butterfly, clouds and sun.
Craft used here: Star stickers, puffy stickers for the moon, Added some wool with a toothpick depicting the needles, a snowman made of cotton or similar material and a thread. Black pepper for the snowman’s eyes and a small shiny paper for the nose.
We practiced a few times with the three sheets to point and say what the images meant. You need to personalize it for your own kid.
For the monsoon we said, if two black clouds fight with each other, we get rain.
I love muddy puddles just like Peppa pig.
My dad loves soup in winter.
It’s my happy birthday in winter and then Santa Claus comes.
I love ice cream.
Mom bought me a new jacket this winter.
I really do not know how well Aruja performed in school show and tell but, from the feedback we got, the teacher seems satisfied and our sheets are still kept in school 🙂
If you ask me, at age three, I am even happy if she just stands in front of the class and speaks something related to the subject. If you need to know anything further, feel free to get in touch.
Hope this has given you some ideas for your “show and tell”. Does your school have “show and tell”? Do share with us your special “show and tell” activities.
I am always glad to get some more ideas.
