Show and Tell

Our class show and tell day is Friday! We hold our show and tell during our morning curriculum. Please place your show and tell in the designated show and tell bucket. 

We strongly encourage show and tell to be "theme related". This means that we would like for items to be brought in related to our weekly theme or letter we are learning about. Show and Tell is used as another learning opportunity and it is a great connection between home and school.
