So, it’s time for Show and Tell Letter L! Let’s get ready!

Show and Tell is always a highly anticipated weekly event in my household, and I love to lean into the excitement of it!

Throughout the week leading up to show and tell, my son and I keep a running list of items that start with the focus letter.  Not all items on the list are show and tell potentials, but we like to see how high we can get our list.  As an added bonus, this is a fun, low-key way to build phonological awareness!

Check out my lovely ideas for show and tell for letter L and my best show and tell tips!

Tips for Show and Tell

  • Plan Ahead. Don’t be caught last minute trying to scrounge up an item for show and tell for letter v. Use this list to prepare for the big day.
  • Consider Categories. When brainstorming for show and tell, you might find it helpful to think in categories like: food, characters/famous people, animals, toys, things, and places.
  • Think Outside of the Box. Sometimes you/a family member/ or friend may have a skill (Can you give a lasso demonstration?) or an item (Any pet llamas out there?) that is a perfect fit for the letter. You can contact your child’s teacher about about setting up an amazing learning experience for the class.


My #1 tip for Show and Tell? Don’t forget your item!

You can go digital and set a reminder on your phone.

Or, take the old school route and stick a post it note on the door
