Letter Kk is so much FUN. It is a great time to learn about the letter that sounds like the letter C. Here are great Letter Kk Ideas to making learning fun inviting and engaging.
Letter Kk Idea #1- Sensory Phonics
We take time to use these sensory sheets to work on the formation of the letter.
Letter Kk Idea #2- Printable Practice
We use these printables to cover handwriting, letter identification, and sound sorting.
These are some of the writing and word work activities we work on throughout the week in small groups.
Many of those students substitute the /k/ sound with a /t/ sound.
I can use this sorting activity to make sure each of my students can hear and sort /k/ and /t/ sounds.
Handwriting is HUGE in kindergarten.
We work on handwriting every.single.day.
One trick I learned is to integrate ABC order,
multiple letter formation,
and capital and lowercase letters all at once.
These sheets allow for differentiation.
Each of the four sheets allow students to practice letter formation.
You can see one sheet allows the student to add a lowercase letter to their parent letter.
Another has students writing both uppercase and lowercase letter,as does the third, but with different letters.
Letter Kk Idea #3- Phonics Strutures
And here is Thursday’s activity.
I love these daily phonics activity.
They are more than just the worksheet.
We are counting syllables, finding small words in bigger words,
and located nouns and verbs.
I tell my students constantly that the lesson is more than what we just write down.
Letter Kk Idea #4- Charting
Letter Kk Idea #5- Sound Matching
We also work on these letter sound matching game.
We match the Koala with the letter on it to the eucalyptus leaf.
You can do all 26 letters, just the ones you have covered, or any between.
This is also a smart way to assess who know their initial letter sounds. 🙂
But we don’t stop the letter of the week with reading.
I love to carry the K theme over to math when I can.
Letter Kk Idea #6- Math Integration
Students count the numbers then use the NOSE of the koala to add the < > or = symbol
to the mats, once they are laminated of course.
This makes a fun and interactive math center.
There is also a supporting worksheet you can use as well.
Here is a lot more in this pack to make the letter K FUN in your classroom.
