I wanted my spotlights of the kids to be different than kindergarten. The kinder teachers have the kids bring a poster of pictures. So I made a little book for the kiddos to color and fill out. Then on their special day, they bring the book to share with the class along with 10 items to show and tell. I do a spotlight twice a week until everyone has had a turn. This year with such a big class it will take until January to get everyone done. Some parents like to come and watch many with video cameras. I allow live pets but mom or dad has to bring it and take it home. We have had everything from a llama in a horse trailer in the parking lot to dogs, cats, fish, frogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, lizards and so on. Some kids like to bring their favorite candy to share but it's not required. I let the child sit in my 'big' teacher chair and use my wireless microphone. They think it is pretty special. When each child is finished sharing we have a questions and answer time. It turns out to be a fun way to get to know each child.
