Show and Tell Letter X [41 Ideas!]

My show and tell series continues today with my 41 show and tell letter x ideas.  X is probably the most difficult of all the letters for a letter of the week show and tell but hopefully this post will help to give you some ideas.

General Show and Tell Tips

  • 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 or alarm on your phone for the night before show and tell.

That way you won’t forget and scramble to find something in your car 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!

Show and Tell Letter X

Now typically for letter of the week show and tell you’re supposed to bring in something that begins with the letter of the week. However, for X sometimes teachers allow any word that has an X in it so I’m going to include two lists- one for words that begin with the letter X and words that have X in them.
