Calling all you creative people! Totally non-dog related
« on: October 25, 2005, 01:08:00 am »
This is about as off topic as one can get on BPO but I need help!  I'm not creative at all and when I think too hard about something my brain goes blank... it happens a lot! ;D 

Anyway, my daughter takes an object for sharing each Friday, for show and tell.  Well they're doing a different letter in the alphabet each week.  This week just happens to be I sharing!  So we have to find something for her to take on Friday that starts with I.  OMG!!  What the heck starts with I?  I'm clueless.  I wouldn't be asking all you loverly people to help out with this but she's already gone objectless for the week of E sharing so I feel like a bad mom if I take her to school Friday  with nothing to show.  For E sharing all I could think of was and Elephant.... we don't have a stuffed elephant.  If anyone (I know you're all more creative than me) can think of something that starts with I, I'd really appreciate it if you can help me out.  Don't want to be known as "the bad mom".  I think the teacher already thinks I'm a crackhead for taking my daughter to school while I'm in my jammies!  Yeah, I've done that the past two days! hehee  I think it's fun, but whatever.  OK so far this is what I have for I sharing, but it's not good....

Ice cream
Ice cube
Ice cicle.... see I'm creative! ;D

Lets see here....

How about ice skates?  or an igloo - thats a tough one.  Iron = boring.  I know, anyone have an Irish Setter they can let Anakalia's daughter borrow!!!   ;)

OH another stipulation here!  The object HAS to fit in her backpack.  UGH the things they make us parents think of.  It's like a major challenge each week to come up with something.  Poor girl had to take a Golf Ball on the week of G sharing!

Ok, here's an idea:

Have her do her show-n-tell about Ichabod Crane and the legend of Sleepy Hallow. (In honor of the upcoming holiday, so to speak!)

She can go get a copy of the story from the library, draw really cool pictures of the story from her point of view, and she can even carve up a small jack-o-lantern as a representation of the Horseman's head.

Whatcha think??

I Got it!!!

How about ISLAND

She can put a map of your/her favorite Island and tell a little story about it?

Example:

The Island of Hawaii - population, weather, when it became a state etc???
