Show and Tell Notebook
Most students are always anxious to share anything and everything during Show and Tell. In order to help make Show and Tell time go smoothly, make students sign up in a Show and Tell notebook prior to sharing. You can have the dates written in the Notebook indicating when you will have Show and Tell time; make five places in the Notebook for students to write their names to sign up. Make sure to specify a time during the week when they are allowed to sign up. You may also have your students write a brief description of what they will be sharing--sometimes they forget!
