Show and Tell

‘Show and Tell’ is an integral part of our school’s curriculum. It was as early as 1954 that this activity was written about in the journal ‘Childhood Education’ and has been adopted by early elementary schools in the UK, USA, Australasia and a few premium preschools in India too. At Neev – The Foundation School, we motivate our students to bring pictures, toys and other child-oriented items from home and explain to the class why they chose that particular item, where they got it from and other relevant information. This activity gives each child an opportunity to be the center of attention in the class as he/she speaks a few lines. It emboldens their social, emotional and language skills as they learn to use descriptive language, practice listening skills and share their special items with others. This positive social interaction assists in boosting children’s self-esteem, fosters public speaking skills and makes them feel comfortable while talking in front of their peers. Stage fear is something our kids have no idea about!
