Letter "Tt" Recognition Craft Projects & Activities
We spend one week reinforcing each letter with crafts and activities after it is introduced.
"T" is for Tree
Paint childs entire hand and part of arm brown for the tree trunk. When dry use a sponge to make green leaves. We used fall colors for these but you could also make them into apple trees - when leaves are dry make red fingerprint apples on the tree. We also do this handprint tree for the September page in our handprint calendar that we do for our big end of the year project for parents. Instructions here...Handprint Calendar
"T" is for Turkey
We study letter T in November when we make turkeys. There are many Turkey craft ideas on our Thanksgiving page here...Thanksgiving Theme
"Tt" is for Triangle.
Glue triangle shapes cut out of construction paper to the letter.
Other ideas for collaging with letter Tt,
Use stickers (we found these cute teapot stickers) or find things in magazines that start with C.
Get The letter Tt Template here...
Carl's Corner Letter T - This comes with a sheet to color, cut, and paste to the letter.
Letter T Sponge Painting
Invest in some Alphabet and misc. sponges for crafts like this. They are about $2 or $3 per bag at Walmart. Also available from school supply stores. We use ours to make a page like this for every letter we are learning from September through May. Parents are encouraged to take them home and post them where the child can see and practice every day. When we finish the entire alphabet they can make them into a book or put them into a binder.
Group Time Activity
Tic Tac Toe
Invite children to play Tic Tac Toe, using capital T's and lowercase t's rather than X's and O's. You may want to provide children with ready made grids, or you can draw one on the board for them to copy on their own papers.
Cut lots of different size triangles from colorful tissue paper. Write the words tissue and triangle on the board. Show children that both of these words begin with t, and have them repeat the words with you. Then invite children to use glue(thinned down with water or starch) to "paint" triangles onto large sheets of construction paper. Encourage them to overlap triangles and colors to create unique works.
