April 2019 Show & Tell

Preschool/Kindergarten  EQ Show & Tell
Thursday & Friday, April 25th & 26th
“If You Could Live Under the Sea, What Kind of Creature Would You Be?” *

       In concert with our theme this month, our EQ Show & Tell invites us to wonder about what it would be like to be one of the fantastic creatures living in our oceans.  This stretches our emotional intelligence, as we imagine being in someone else’s position and what life might be like somewhere else.

     Have fun with this, as you talk about what you and your child might prefer, and why.  Perhaps you would like to be a giant whale, or a happy porpoise jumping in and out of the waves.  The octopus might be a wise choice, because who couldn’t use 8 arms?  Beloved Nemo makes that little clown anemonefish a popular choice.  But we have been learning about so many life-forms, it may be hard to choose!

     Send your child to school ready to let us know what his or her chosen sea creature is, and why.  You might like to send along a picture, to help explain it to the class.  We may be surprised by how we populate the sea!

* (Please note that this is a correction from the April calendar; we listed last year’s Show & Tell by mistake.)
