Put Your “T” in the Air

Before children can identify the differences between letters, children first need to identify differences between shapes.  When reading at home, be on the lookout for letters with “special” shapes, like the letters in children’s names. Hunt for curvy lines, straight lines, or even

circles!

As a fun activity, you might want to try singing the following rhyme with the letter “T” with your child. Trace the letter with your finger. See how it has two straight lines?

 

 

Put Your “T” in the Air  (to tune of “Put Your Finger in the Air”)

Put your “T” in the air, in the air.

Put your “T” in the air, in the air.

Put your “T” in the air, and let’s hold it out to there.

Put your “T” in the air, in the air.
