### Objective

The objective of this lesson is to help your child learn to recognize and write the capital letter T.

### Goal

At the end of the lesson your child will be able to recognize the letter T and say its name.

### Time requirement

20 minutes.

### Grade level

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten.

### Introductory activity

**What you will need:**

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

**What to do:**

- 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’.
- Give the other pencil to your child and have your child draw a letter T like you have created.
- Have them practice drawing a few more Ts with the three pencils.

### Challenge

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.

### Evaluation

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.
