After finishing our craft, the elevators for Chapter 29 it was time for Show and Tell. All of the Show and Tell items were put in a big bag. An item would be removed and we asked, who does this belong to? First up was Delia and her new puppy, who has no name. She pointed out that the eyes were put on and a little crooked. It came from the store that way.
She let everyone have a chance to hold it and touch it.
Cerys brought a Frozen movie sticker book.
She showed us EVERY page.
She had also brought a light up wand, but got kind of mad it kept lighting up when she didn’t want it to, so we just focused on the book.
Next up was Layla. She had brought an actual Wonka bar she got for Christmas. Some of the kids hoped to try it. But we were all reminded this was SHOW and TELL and not Share and Eat. Layla said it didn’t really taste different from any other chocolate bar. It sure looked cool.
After Layla, Ruby showed everyone her very soft and purple friend her grandmother had recently bought her.
It was so soft and cuddly she let everyone touch it.
Roisin had a very delicate Show and Tell item.
It was an Irish dancer with porcelain arms and legs. We talked about her intricate clothes, and long hair – but only Tara and Roisin held her, since she was breakable.
Next up was Jonah. He had created a short game to go along with his show and tell items.
We had to guess which were dinosaurs and which one was not. They all looked like dinos to me!
Next up was…
Eva and some pretty cool shoes she had found in her closet.
But it took a minute for her to put those shoes on, and as it was so close to 4:30, we switched over Fin:
He had a rather delicate red dragon with a mummy Lego guy riding on the back. It was actually a Lego dragon too! Because the wings and head had kept falling off, we decided not to pass that one around.
Back to Eva! Her shoes were very tippity tappity clippity clomping!
She said she doesn’t even take tap dancing lessons!
What would be next? It was a book.
Ellen had earned enough stickers in her class to pick out a book at the end of the month. She was told this book, called the Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling, was a lot like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. She can’t wait to read it.
And finally, Emilia had something to show that couldn’t be held in a bag…
Her taste buds. She tells us that when she grows up, they will blossom into taste flowers. How long will that take? Maybe when she is about 110. Tara marked her calendar to so she could check back on that in 103 years.
Time to go. Despite all the excitement with elevators and show and tell,no one forgot that we still hadn’t had a treat. This week Tara had another Irish candy: Flying Saucers.
Only one more chapter left!
