Item Ideas for Show and Tell Letter T

Show and Tell Tips from a Kindergarten Teacher

*Any item you send in for show and tell should be able to be transported to and from school easily. Your child should be able to carry their item on their own with a backpack or bag to make this process easier.

*Do not send any valuable, breakable, or easily wrecked items into school for show and tell. Children can be rough on things and they could get damaged or lost by bringing them into school. A photo works great instead of the actual item.

*Make sure that any item you send to school is grade level and school appropriate and approved. What is appropriate for a kindergartner is different than what may be appropriate for a 4th or 5th grader to bring in to share.

*Have children practice sharing their item at home before they bring it into school to share. This will help with their confidence and knowing what to say when it is their turn to share. Some common talking points would be:

        • Why they like their item
        • What makes their item special
        • Where they got their item
        • What their item does
        • How they use their item

Things that Start with T for Show and Tell

Show and tell is an awesome way to help children learn their letters, practice letter sounds and letter recognition, and learn about initial sounds. Children love sharing their items and it is a great way to practice their public speaking skills at an early age. 

If you are unsure about bringing in an item to school due to logistics or how valuable your child’s item is you can always send in a photo instead. You can also contact your child’s teacher and they may be able to help with the logistics of bringing in the item.

Food items or treats make for great show and tell letter t items. Due to some school rules on bringing in food or classroom allergies be sure to check with your child’s teacher on this ahead of time. You may be able to send enough to share with the class if things work out.

Photos always make a great idea for an item to bring in for show and tell that is easy to transport. If an item is too expensive, big, or difficult to bring into school take a photo and bring it in instead.

Photos of people whose names start with the letter T include Tina, Tony, Tiffany, Thomas, Tate, Teagan, Teddy, Theo, Tristan, Tiana, Tucker, Theodore, Tim, Tallulah, and more.
