Alphabet Activities: Letter T is for Tree
Present and display your option of alphabet letter T Tree printable materials listed in the materials column:
* Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Trace the letter T's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page or extended tracer. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil. Demonstrate the direction and numbers on the arrows that help them trace the letter correctly. During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process. For advanced independent handwriting practice, print your choice of printable lined-paper or story paper (draw, color & write).
Coloring Activity: Encourage the children to color the tree image with a variety of materials.
Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.
Discuss other letter T words and images (refer to letter activity worksheet above): First 'brainstorm' and ask the children about other words that have that beginning sound and write them on a board (dry erase board) as the children come up with example. You can print letter T's in a different bright color to make it stand out. If you have illustrated alphabet books you can also use images in them. You can also display T posters and coloring pages or even make a letter T classroom book. For related images visit: Letter T Alphabet Printable Materials and make your choice.
