Turtle /t/ Diagrams

Read picture books about turtles, sea turtles, and tortoises.

  • Create a large Venn diagram on an easel pad. Invite children to compare turtles to another animal with four legs. Record similarities and differences in the diagram and read them aloud to students.
  • Draw a circle on an easel pad and glue a picture of turtle inside it. Have children say the word turtle aloud, listening for the beginning /t/ sound. Ask students to think of words that begin with the /t/ sound. Record the words around the circle, making a web diagram. Read the words aloud together.
