ABC Show and Tell List: Items Around The House


ABC Show and Tell List: Items Around The HouseShow and Tell is a very exciting time at school for the students! I know it’s my son’s favorite day of the week. Since he’s in preschool, they focus on one letter of the alphabet each week, so you guessed it — that’s the letter the show and tell item for the week needs to represent. Sometimes it’s not an easy task to get a kid that can’t read or spell to pick out an item that begins with a specific letter, so the task falls on mom.

This list is here to help you, mama!
