State and model the objective

Tell the children that today they are going to go on a tour as they practice identifying and writing the uppercase letter T and lowercase t.

Practice the skill within an activity

Find a T for a ticket on the tour.

  • Tell the children that today they are going to go on a tour, but first, they need to find Ts to get on the tour and to make the tour go.
  • Place T letter cards (see below) around the room along with distractor letters.
  • Have the children look around the classroom for Ts.
  • When the children find a T letter card have them say, “I found a T ticket to go on the tour!”
  • Make sure that a child doesn't get a distractor letter as their T ticket.

Take a ride on the T tour.

  • Have one child be the ticket taker, and have him or her take the tickets as the children get on the T tour.
  • Lead the children around the classroom with a wagon and have one or two children sit inside while the others follow behind it in a line like a train.
  • Pretend to have the T tour run out of gas and stop.
  • Have the children run and find more Ts to put in the wagon to make the wagon go again.

Color Ts.

  • Give the children the big T page (see below) and tell them to color their T.
  • Have the children fill their big T with little ts.

Apply the skill

Find the target letter mixed in with other letters (see below).

  • Tell the children they will find more Ts on a paper.
  • Display the page of mixed up letters and have the children find and circle all the capital Ts and lowercase ts.
  • Have the children say, “I found a T!” every time they circle a capital or lowercase letter T.

Write Ts.

  • Give the children the writing practice page (see below).
  • Let the children trace the Ts then write the Ts on their own using the lines as a guide.
