Letter T Preschool Activities

Whether you have a letter of the week in your classroom or at your home finding fun alphabet activities are important for students. When practicing the alphabet it is important for students to have free space to practice, make mistakes, and learn about the alphabet through various forms of activity. When students complete full body activities while learning the alphabet they are able to commit more to memory and learn faster too. Here we share the best letter t preschool activities and craft ideas for preschoolers. These activities will increase student engagement and help them learn the capital, and lowercase T, and the sound it makes.

Importance of teaching the letters of the alphabet through hands on activities

Teaching the alphabet through hands on activities can help your students increase their literacy skills and build their vocabulary. With these alphabet activities, you’ll be able to engage your students more than ever before. These letter t activities for preschool will also help your students improve their fine motor skills while they practice writing. It’s important that children learn how to write with pencils and other writing utensils early on so they will have a head start in school when they need it most. The letter t is two basic lines which make it a great letter to teach early on for practicing their writing skills too.

Letter T cooking activities for preschool

In our house we love to integrate T into everything we do as I teach it. We also include different food nights for letter t activities for preschool. Not only is this fun and time to bond it also helps with math skills, fine motor, and trying new foods.

Foods that start with T:

  • Tacos
  • Tomato
  • Turnip
  • Tofu
  • Tenderloin
  • Trout
  • Tuna
  • Turkey
  • Taffy
  • Tart
  • Toffee
  • Trifle
  • Turnover
  • Tater tots
  • Tortilla
  • Turmeric (we make it into tea)
  • Tea
  • Tangerine
  • Tamales
  • Turtle cheesecake
  • Tostinos pizza rolls
  • Triscuits
  • Taco salad

Cooking is something we love to do as a family because we create special memories like, remember that time daddy spilled flour all over you? Yes, It has happened and although it gets messy it sure gives us good laughs.

Letter T Crafts for Preschoolers

Since we only focus on the letter until we master it, we only complete a couple of projects. We make a capital T craft and a lowercase T craft. However, for more T craft ideas make sure to check out this post.

To make our capital T for tree craft you will need brown paper, green paper, and we added some feathers but you do not have to! Next, I cut a strip of the brown and green paper. Then, glue the green piece at the top. Finally add some feathers or leaf stickers for a fluffy tree.

Also, try out this lowercase T craft. All you need is one color paper, and scrap paper cut into small triangles. Next, glue two strips of paper together to make the lowercase t. Then, have students glue small triangles all over the letter t. We love making crafts that also serve a purpose. For example, this lowercase T craft makes a great craft to include math and triangles!

Plus, it takes ordinary task cards and makes them more fun and hands-on. To use, just print out the pages, laminate, and  cut on the solid lines, and hole punch on the circles. Then, leave these out as a center for students to thread the correct answer through a pipe cleaner, or stir stick, or even a straw. Students love these letter t preschool activities!

We use beginning sound task cards and there are nine for every letter. Students will read the task card and find the object that begins with T. To grab over two hundred task cards you can download them here today!
