Introductory activity

What you will need:

  • At least three pencils (perhaps colored pencil crayons)
  • A piece of paper

What to do:

  1. Take two of the pencils and form an upper case T with them (with one a horizontal stick at the top, one a vertical stick underneath). Tell them that the symbol you’ve made is the T, and the sound it makes is ‘tuh’.
  2. Give the other pencil to your child and have your child draw a letter T like you have created.
  3. Have them practice drawing a few more Ts with the three pencils.


If your child learns the capital letter T right away, introduce the lower case letter t.

Reinforcement activity

Print out the attached worksheet. Ask your child to complete the worksheet by themselves. Feel free to help them if they get stuck or ask any questions.


In order to see if your child has achieved the goal of this lesson, write a few different letters, including T, on the piece of paper and have them circle the letter T.
