This week we are sharing our letter T activities. We played some games that started with T and did lots of fine motor and sensory activities to build those little finger muscles. We even completed an impromptu craft that turned into a snack as well.

To start our study of the letter T and a week of fun activities, we read the book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. This is a classic, but man does it tug on my heart strings. I don't know if I've ever read it without tearing up. This is all about a young boy and his relationship with a tree, the give and take nature of their relationship, and the changes in their friendship as both grow older.

To match with our book, The Giving Tree, we created a tissue paper tree. I gave my daughter small squares of green tissue paper and a bottle of glue. We worked on using "a dot, not a lot" of glue and sticking on the tissue paper one piece at a time. We tried to make the tissue paper as three dimensional as possible. She colored the trunk brown with a crayon.

Not only did the picture turn out cute, but it was great fine motor practice for her as she squeezed the glue bottle and then had to pick up just one piece of tissue paper at a time. Her alphabet book is part of my Alphabet Centers with Real Pictures.

Letter T Handwriting Practice

To practice writing the letter T, I put our alphabet tracing sheets in a reusable plastic sleeve and gave her a dry erase marker. The T's were pretty easy for her, so I had her go back and practice S also. And I had to remind her to practice them on her own, not just tracing. You'd think she'd know the drill by now, but she always tries to get out of this handwriting activity.

We also decided to use our "What's the Letter Pages" from our Alphabet Practice pack to practice tracing and identifying the letter T. She wanted to circle a rhyming word and went for "key" first and then realized she was looking for the tree because it starts with T.

Letter T Identification

We practiced identifying the letter T in all different fonts with our T page from our Alphabet Centers pack. We used our favorite dot markers to fill in the circles that had a T in it. 

Letter T sticker find

We also worked on our sticker chart. I laid out a bunch of old scrapbook stickers and she dug through them looking for all of the T stickers. Letter ID and fine motor practice all in one as she worked to peel each sticker off. 

Letter T Puzzles and Games

For some extra fun we found some activities we already had around the house that started with T. First, we played Tic Tac Toe. Our version is from the Target Dollar Spot a few years back and I made our felt board using these simple directions. You could create a similar one or try this cute magnetic Tic Tac Toe from Amazon.
Tens frame matching game

We also pulled out our Ten Frame Matching Game since Ten starts with T. These are a freebie that you can find here. A little math practice to balance out all of these literacy based activities.


Letter T Sensory & Fine Motor Fun

letter T out of tape

First up in our sensory and fine motor fun was washi tape!! I took our playdough mats that I printed two per page and slid them into reusable pocket protectors. Then I gave my daughter washi tape because it is easy to rip and remove. I told her to make the T's out of tape. She ripped the tape to fill in those spaces with little help from me. Sometimes she forgets how easy that tape is to rip and thinks she needs me to do it or scissors to help cut. 
Letter T fine motor practice perler beads

Next, we pulled out our Perler/fuse beads. Yes, this is a flashback to my childhood and my girls absolutely love them. And I don't mind them as long as I don't find them on the floor by stepping on them!! These are great fine motor practice as little fingers work to pick up and place the tiny beads on the tray. If you want, you can melt them and keep the letter T once you are done. We just made it and then dumped it back out. 

Make triangles and tents for the letter T

We also played with our Magnatiles to practice making triangles and tents, both of which start with a T. These are great for strengthening little fingers because the magnets are strong and you really have to pull them apart.

T is for teeth

I made up an on the spot craft to combine food and fine motor. I made a mouth and we talked about teeth starting with the letter T. My daughter had to add dots of glue and then pick up the mini marshmallows one at a time and glue them into the mouth to look like teeth. And she got to eat the leftovers! Probably her favorite part!
