Our Christian home educators group (UCCHE) decided to start a once a week Show and Tell time. It was awesome! The purpose is to teach kids to present to their peers and also how to listen when another is presenting. Valuable skills indeed. It was so great because all ages of kids were invited to participate, even the toddlers. I think one of the things I love about homeschooling the most is that kids are learning from kids of all ages, not from just their own age group.
Josiah took his Thankful Tree to show everyone. He did a great job of explaining all the different things we had put on our tree. Because he was presenting, he insisted on wearing a nice shirt and tie with his dress shoes. It was so cute! Hailey presented us with a short little dance.
Here are all the kids (happened to be 6 years and under) who participated the first time we got together for Show and Tell day. They are showing off their things they had created or read. Some brought their favorite toys or books. I loved how all the parents were so encouraging to each child. I think it is great for homeschool kids to get some praise from people besides mom and dad. I'm so glad I get to be a part of this awesome group!
