  • Consider Categories. When brainstorming for show and tell, you might find it helpful to think in categories like: food, characters/famous people, animals, toys, things, and places.
  • Think Outside of the Box. Sometimes you/a family member/ or friend may have a skill (Know a Navy serviceman/woman or a nurse?) or an item that is a perfect fit for the letter. You can contact your child’s teacher about about setting up an amazing learning experience for the class.
