Circle Time: The Show and Tell Weekly Thread

Welcome back to Show and Tell. Everyone is welcome to join, even if you have never posted before and just found out about Show and Tell for the first time today. In fact, we hope you do go back to your blog and post your own Show and Tell item and then return with the link to your post. Details on how to participate are located at the bottom of this post.

Let's begin.

We spent the afternoon riding the Staten Island aimlessly. We wanted to show the twins the Statue of Liberty, their love sealed by a Wonder Pets episode. I know their jumping and clapping was because they recognized the statue from the television show. But I really did have an All-American lump in my throat when she came into view. It didn't help that we were listening to Paul Simon as we drove into the city, and, at the risk of having everyone collectively roll my eyes at the choice, I give you a quote from "American Tune" (which--shush--IS one of my favourite Simon songs).

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
We come in the age's most uncertain hours
and sing an American tune


What are you showing today?

Other People Standing at the Head of the Class:

Want to bring something to Show and Tell?
  • If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Sunday (or earlier in the weekend or on Monday if you can't do Sunday), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item.
  • Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink in the comments section below (make sure you don't just comment that you participated: add a link to your blog in your comment so people can click over). I post a new Show and Tell post every Saturday night or Sunday. I usually move people up into the body of the post every few hours.
  • Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week.
  • If you want it...
    I've now placed a Show and Tell archive on the sidebar that will be updated each week in case you miss it. And click here for the icon code if you wish to have it for your blog. It links to the archives.

I love the photo of the huge statue and tiny sailboat.

I've always enjoyed the Staten Island ferry -- though I have never managed to get off and actually set foot on Staten Island.

We used to visit NYC at least once a year, since it's where my mom grew up and where most of her family still lives. It's been many years since I've been there, but I know exactly what you mean - Ellis Island does that to me too.

Here's my post for this week - it's an odd one as usual!

Arian said...

I'm here.

I'll never forget my visit to the Lady!

I really want to go see your lady one day, I can imagine just how awe-inspiring she is in the 'flesh'.

P.S. I love that photo of the Statue of Liberty - that little yacht in front of it looks so small.

I used to live in NYC and never visited. How dumb is that?

I am in this week, showing thing I have crafted:

Here it is...

Jen said...

I have never been to New York. I've seen it out an airplane window and been in the airport, but that is as close as I get.

Antigone said...

All I do is eat, so my show&tell this week is...www.antigonelost.com

Kristine said...

It is an amazing sight, isn't it?

Today for Show and Tell I'm letting off a little steam and wondering if he will ever move it. http://mommyneedstherapy.blogspot.com/2008/10/show-and-tell-of-when-will-he-move-it.html

Wishing 4 One said...

I saw her only once back in the day and I must sadly admit I did not fully appreciate seeing her at that time. I was young, dumb and in NYC to party....

When I am in NYC again, after lots of thin NY pizza (best place in THE world to eat by the way) I will go see her and fully apprieciate her beauty.

Here's my classwork for today Ms.Lolli...
