Show and Tell Competition (Snapshots)

"Tell me and I forget, Show me and I remember, involve me and I understand."

Gyan Devi Salwan Montessori School organized a "Show and Tell activity" on animals for nursery classes. The students brought pictures and toys of their favourite animal to share with the class. This activity gave each child a chance to be the centre of attention in the class as he or she spoke few lines about their favourite animal. The main aim of the activity was to develop their social, emotional and language skills as they learnt to use descriptive language, practice listening skills and share their special items with others. This positive social interaction also assisted in boosting their self-esteem. The “Show and Tell activity” helped to foster public speaking skills and students felt comfortable while talking in front of their peer group. Through this activity students also learnt to communicate feelings, thoughts and emotions with words. All the students participated actively in the activity.
