Literacy Activities

Try tiny, tasty treats

  • Show the children tasty treats (e.g., toast, tomatoes, tangerines, tater tots) and point out that tasty and treats start with the /t/ sound.
  • Have each child fill a tray with two treats.
  • Point out the /t/ sound as the children take turns sharing what’s on their tray.
  • Say, “It’s time to taste our tiny treats!” and let the children eat their treats.

Vote on the tastiest treat

  • Create a T-chart (see below) listing two treats from the activity.
  • Have the children vote on which treat they think was the tastiest.
  • Tally the votes for each treat by writing a T in the corresponding column on the chart.

March and sound out words

  • Have the children march and sound out a word that starts with T (e.g., t + u + g).
  • Tell the children to jump with both feet and say the whole word (e.g., tug).
  • Repeat with other words that start with T (e.g., tin, top, tap, tell).
