If you want to enrich your preschooler’s early childhood education with preschool activities that will help them learn the alphabet, you are in the right place!
This week I’m sharing what’s in our Letter T Printable Pack for 30+ activities focused on learning the letter “T” and short words that start with the letter “T”. These printables are from our Learn to Read Preschool Letter Series, and they are intended to help you review vocabulary with your preschooler, venture into reading, as well as offer some fun crafts and activities to help inspire you along the way.
If you’ve been following my blog for long, then you know I love to create fun printables for my preschoolers. I have a certificate in Early Childhood Education and I’ve enjoyed being a practitioner of Montessori methods with my own children for a handful of years.
Early Childhood Education with Preschool Fun
By sharing about our preschool at home activities online I hope to help other moms and grandparents, teachers and caretakers discover new fun ways to use contemporary Montessori methods to preschool at home. I even teach other moms how to preschool at home through my online preschool program: Visual Montessori.

Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter T
This series is ideal for parents who have a preschooler who knows their ABCs and who has expressed an interest in reading. We’re on a journey to learn to read short words from either the list of Dolch sight words, or short words that are easily represented with pictures. If you would like to assess your preschooler’s readiness in the area of reading, I have a free chart in my post, Advancing Preschool Reading Behaviors. If you like this post, please PIN it on PINTEREST. 🙂
To get ready for each week I do some online research, and review tips from the books I’ve read. I also spend some time on Pinterest looking for things that might be good for our letter activities for the week. I pin everything that looks interesting. My goal is to create a PINTEREST board for each letter of the alphabet. Follow me on Pinterest if you want to get copied on all the resources and ideas that I discover via Pinterest.
Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter T
I’ve designed the Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet printable packs to be super easy for a busy mom. All you need are some scissors, glue, markers or crayons, and a little imagination. I laminate our projects, but it’s not necessary to do so. The Letter “T” printable pack includes: three puzzles, counting, matching and shapes games, do-a-dot, flashcards, crafts and loads more.
The coloring pages can be colored with paint, sponges, q-tips, markers, foam stamps, cotton balls, fruit or vegetable stamps, markers, crayons, or colored pencils. Feel free to add baking soda with vinegar to the mix or sand or glitter or whatever you want to create more texture. Here you can see a special printable to help your little one learn all about trucks. There is a shadow box for storing and organizing paper tools as well.
The boys love puzzles and we’re fortunate enough to have some super cute puzzles from Melissa and Doug. They include this tool puzzle: Melissa and Doug Tool Puzzle. Puzzles are great for introducing children to shape and color matching as well as problem solving skills.
And this truck puzzle, also by Melissa and Doug: Truck Puzzle.
You may also notice our Pattern Cards for Pattern Blocks and Smethport 200 Pattern Blocks (Foam Magnets) – in the photo, I’ve included the pattern card with a train on it. The boys love to play with the pattern cards and magnets – it often leads to independent play and is a great primer for beginning math skills.
Learn to Read Preschool Alphabet Letter T Printable Pack
In the Learn to Read Preschool Letter T printable pack, the coloring pages are following by activities like a puzzle, draw a path, and craft. Crafts can be as simple or complex as you like. You can simply color the craft or you can print it on various pieces of colored construction paper and have your child assemble like a puzzle. I also like to include an object that the child can use to make the letter – this week we use colored ties to make our letters “Tt”.
The printables pack will also include flashcards with commonly used and easy to illustrate words that start with the letter, as well as a lace-up card, cutting practice, counting, aligning and organizing activities. The package is completed with do-a-dot fun and sight words to aide in further study.
The entire download for letter T includes over 30 activities and 60+ pages of printables:

Letter T Reading for Emergent Readers
A heavy emphasis is being placed on reading in our preschool at home efforts this fall. If you’re looking for books for an emergent reader, You’ll want to take a look at these books perfect for emergent readers:
- Steam Train, Dream Train– The dream train pulls into the station, and one by one the train cars are loaded: polar bears pack the reefer car with ice cream, elephants fill the tanker cars with paints, tortoises stock the auto rack with race cars, bouncy kangaroos stuff the hopper car with balls. Sweet and silly dreams are guaranteed for any budding train enthusiasts.
- Little Blue Truck is a joyful cacophony of animal and truck sounds that will have youngsters beeping and quacking—and begging for one more go-round! Along the way, readers see that it pays to be kind to our animal friends . . . if we show a friendly respect to others, we’re more likely to get help when we’re, say, stuck in the muck in a truck.
- Tallulah’s Tutu – She just knew she could be a great ballerina, if only she had a tutu. So she starts ballet class. When she does not receive a tutu, she quits. But everywhere she goes, things keep reminding her of ballet. And Tallulah can’t seem to stop doing ballet, either. A park bench makes a perfect barre, and what better way to pet the dog than with a graceful plié? This well-told, funny story with a smart new character will satisfy girls’ cravings for pretty and pink, but also shows that ballet is about more than just the tutu.
In the pack you’ll also find flashcards for 20 words with pictures as well as sight words for your preschooler. For information about what sight words are appropriate for pre-K, kindergarten and up through grade 3, please see my post, sight words.
Circle Time Morning Board
A preschool Morning Board is a great way to start a preschool day. I like to use is as a visual guide for the day and it helps me walk my preschoolers through some basics – reading a calendar, telling time, and more. For a complete list of our morning board printables click here: Morning Board.
Teach Character in your Preschool
To supplement our letter T activities for the week, I also use God’s Little Explorers. Our letter T coincides with week 5 in GLE. In God’s Little Explorer’s the bible story for the week of letter T study is the story of Abraham traveling in a tent. My favorite activity (used to emphasize the story) is one where you take flashlights and shine them into a tent and sing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” – a great way to engage my little guys into a retelling of the story. Stacie has some wonderful ideas. Click here to learn more about God’s Little Explorers.
