I have to say, this has been the hardest list of ideas of all the letters in the alphabet to put together so far. I fear that the hardest one may be the letter Z! However, I was extremely determined to put this one together as a separate post because I think all the letters of the alphabet are important to teach our children and X is no exception! I also believe that since it was so challenging to put together, it probably means others are having a hard go of it as well, so it was even more important to do it and do it well. So if you are on the letter X in your home schooling curriculum and are stumped, here are at least 10 ideas to help you get started!
