Use the Jolly phonics action.  Turn head from side to side as if watching tennis and say t, t, t.

All the children to do the action and say the sound. Make sure each child is saying the sound correctly.

Skywrite the letter /t/ and make sure child is making the /t/ shape correctly. You could also get children to sit in a circle and write the sound on each other's back so they can really feel it.
