Here are printable materials and some
suggestions to present letter T. The presentation
ideally should be part of turkey activities and crafts.
Letter T is for Turkey
Present and display your option of alphabet letter printable
materials listed in the materials column.
* Finger and Pencil Tracing:
letter T's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the
letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring
page or extended tracer. Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter
with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil.
Demonstrate the direction and numbers on the arrows that help them trace the
letter correctly. During the demonstration, you may want to count out
loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order
aids them in the writing process.
*Find the letter T's: Have the children find all the
letter T's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle
or trace/shade them first. Visit each child to make sure they
have identified the letter T's and then discuss the locations with the poster.
*Coloring Activity: Encourage the children to color the
turkey image with a variety of materials.
