My son is in year one and has to bring something for show and tell tomorrow starting with the initial sound 'i' as in 'igloo'. I can only think of instrument which I don't have lol. Any ideas would be much appreciated smile

Iron (prob not a great idea). Iguana (doubt you have one). Insurance document (not v exciting). I hope someone else comes along with some more inspiration.

Insect? Do you have any toy insects? Or maybe print of a photo of an insect.

ink pen?

hippyhippyshake Mon 09-Oct-17 19:23:50

Oh yes, insect is good.

MrsTerryPratchett Mon 09-Oct-17 19:24:26

Has to be short 'i' not ah-ee noise, right? So instrument, insect, igloo or iguana. Not ice cream or iron? We did a coloured picture of an iguana.

Hehe,. I like Hippies idea. He could take the internet like in the IT crowd.

itsgood2talk Mon 09-Oct-17 19:25:50

Insect is a great idea - I seem to remember he had an insect plastic toy although god knows where it is.

India is a good one - maybe I will print out a map 🤔.

No iguanas but I have a toy lizard is that the same? Lol

We struggled with A too which I throughly would be easy and he ended up taking armbands lol 😂

@MrsTerryPratchett yes exactly it has to be phonetically which is so much harder lol I find myself saying the names of things out loud to check lol. For A my son wanted to take an aeroplane but that wasn't allowed lol

MrsTerryPratchett Mon 09-Oct-17 19:29:49

The internet. grin

Iron- take in an iron hinge, nail or other object?
Icing- make a fairy cake and ice it- lunch and show and tell
Ink- a fountain pen or cartridge/pot of ink. Perhaps with an ink eraser too!

Does it need to be the short /i/ sound, rather than the longer sounds, such as /eye/ in iron?

DrSeuss Mon 09-Oct-17 19:36:23

Go all "Sound of Music" and take himself then say he's "incorrigible"?

PanannyPanoo Mon 09-Oct-17 19:39:18

anything interesting!

RightOnTheEdge Mon 09-Oct-17 19:40:59

It can't be iron or icing as they start with an eye sound not a short i like igloo

minipie Mon 09-Oct-17 19:45:58

Illustration? Image? Invention? can all be interpreted quite flexibly
