It’s an old established practice among Schools around the world – Show and Tell. Beginning¬† as an activity in pre-School and going all the way through to the final Primary Years, it is one way of building student listening, speaking and presentation skills. To make it worthwhile, teachers need to supervise the activity, and ensure that it is age appropriate. There are aspects of Show and Tell which make it a worthwhile activity as opposed to a time filler. The length of the talk begins in the very young years as 1-2 minutes, with one or two questions posed by classmates. Through well planned Show and Tell activities, children will grow in self confidence and build a broader interest in their world. To read more about the benefits of a good Show and Tell program, versus the pitfalls of one which is not well planned read our March newsletter.
