Show and Tell Letter I [75 Ideas!]

We are inching closer and closer to the end of this letter of the week show and tell series which is good because we are inching closer and closer to the first day of school and I have a goal to be all done with this series in time for all you new preschool parents to have this series as a resource!  Today I’m sharing 75 ideas for show and tell letter I. As a teacher and mom I have a lot of show and tell experience that I hope to share with you all.

Show and Tell Tips from a Teacher and Mom

  • Look through your kid’s stuffed animals and action figures.  Sometimes you can find a character whose name starts with the letter that you need.
  • Look through your child’s books.  You might find a book with a title that begins with the letter that you need
  • When all else fails have your kiddo take in an alphabet block with the letter on it or a an alphabet letter magnet.
  • My son once took in a picture that he colored from a coloring book.  The picture was of something that started with the letter of the week and he loved showing off his artwork during share time.

And this won’t help you think of anything but this last tip will help keep you out of a bind-

My #1 Show and Tell Tip

Set a reminder on your phone for the night before show and tell.

That way you won’t forget and scramble to find something in your car for show and tell I while you wait in the drop off line for school.

Yes, yes that did happen to me. Don’t be me. You’re better than that!
