Letter K Preschool Activities

Hi everyone! I just realized that I haven’t done a Teeny Tot Tuesday post in awhile, so I thought I’d better get in gear over here! So today we’re going to watch the Teeny Tot tackle the Letter K. Our topic is K for Kite, and you’ll also see a few other random activities that she picked out that might not match with our letter, but no harm no foul. So let’s get to it…

Welcome to the Letter K for Kite preschool alphabet activities!

Letter K Memory Verse:

“Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.” Psalm 34:13

For our verses and accompanying games/stories we use the following books:
ABC Memory Verses & My ABC Bible Verses

Daily Learning Notebook: We always start off our day with our Daily Learning Notebook. This is of course the preschool level version, but I have an elementary level, and a cursive version as well.

Alphabet Tile Sorting Game:Today I had her do a letter K sorting game. I gave her several different alphabet tiles and had her pick out just the letter K tiles.

Large Floor Numbers: One of her favorite games is the large floor numbers. We always lay them out together, she helps me put them in order and then I call out numbers randomly, call them out in order, and then we even go backwards from 10 to 1 as well. It’s all great practice for number recognition, plus she gets to hop all over the place which helps get out some of the wiggles!

Do-A-Dot Markers: Of course another favorite is the do-a-dot worksheets. Her is her letter K do-a-dot, and she did a great job doing one dot in each circle on the page.

Scissor Skills: Each of my Letter activities  includes a scissor skills page. I’m really happy with the progress that she’s made with these. I wanted to mention that when she started with the scissor skills pages, she couldn’t cut along the lines at all. But through the year and practicing each week, she’s now able to cut along the lines quite precisely, even the harder shaped lines as well. So I just wanted to encourage you not to be too hard on your kiddos, but just let them continue to practice with them and they’ll get the hang of controlling those crazy scissors in no time!

Alphabet Alley Magnetic Set: Here’s another fun activity, It doesn’t really have much to do with the letter K, but the Teeny Tot loves playing with these magnetic sets from Alphabet Alley! She pulls them out quite frequently and loads them into her own workboxes! This one is the Good News Easter Magnetic Playset.

Shapes: Here the Teeny Tot is working on her shapes and numbers pages in her Daily Learning Notebook. Normally I have her do just one letter, shape, and color per week, but sometimes she just likes to keep on going and colors more than one.

Letter K Collage: These collage pages are part of my Letter of the Week preschool curriculum, and I usually have her glue something fun to them like kites, or Kellogg cereal or something like that. Today I put a letter “k” stamp and ink pad in there and she will stamp little letter k’s all over the page.

Puzzle: Another favorite from Alphabet Alley are their puzzles. I love how big the pieces are and also how durable they are. This one is the Noah’s Ark Jigsaw Puzzle and it’s just $5.99. Puzzles are a great way to work on logical thinking skills!

Memory Bracelet: We’re a little behind on our bracelets, but I did put a few of these in her drawer to get caught up. She’ll color the bracelet, then cut it out and we just glue the edges to make it into a bracelet for her to wear around for the day. Randomly I’ll ask her what the items on her bracelet are throughout that day to help her memorize them.

Block Patterns: Okay, so this one is more of a color matching it looks like than a pattern activity. But normally I have her do a pattern on her letter shapes. These letters are just printed on construction paper, then laminated. I used my Letter Collage Worksheets to print them out. Here are links to them if you’re so inclined:

Read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and put up the letter K on our Alphabet Tree! You can download my small alphabet letters here.

 

11 x 11 Pin Geoboard: We use these to make letters, numbers, shapes etc!

Finger Tracing Paint Bag: This is simple and fun, I filled a bag with tempura paint, you could also use cheap shaving cream. Then I’ll tape it to her desk for her to practice writing her letter on using her finger. You could also skip the bag and put shaving cream on your counter if you’re feeling brave ;o) After we do the letters we do numbers, shapes, and whatever else we can think of!

Family Fun Night: Have some Kellogg’s Special K or if you’re not on a diet, you could always go for a Krispy Kreme! And watch: Veggie Tales: King George and the Ducky, or The Lion King

  1. I can’t get over how much more like a “big girl” your daughter looks in these photos! What a change!

  2. Where can I find the memory bracelets? Those are fun! Are they yours? I have both your preK & k4 curriculum, but I downloaded them a while ago.
    Thanks for everything!

    • I too am having a hard time finding the bracelets…

      • I was also interested in the bracelets. Is this something you made Erica? Let us know where to find them please! :)
        Looks like y’all are progressing along well this year!

    • Hi everyone,
      I don’t have them free on my blog, but they’re a bonus part of my LOTW curriculum, did you purchase that? They should be in the Lessons folder unless you have an older version. If so let me know and I can update your download links :o)

  3. These are some very creative and engaging activities. I especially like how your activities allow children to learn in multiple ways.

  4. I LOVE the memory bracelet idea! I am thinking it could even be used for multiplication tables – our current project with my 8 year old…

    Where did you get your blocks to put on the block patterns?

  6. Hi,

    I have been reading your blog for past 2 months, and you are simply Amazing !!
    I am a christian from india and have 2 lovely kids, 4 year and 3 year old. homeschool is not very well accepted by the government of india. however, looking at the fast pace changes and incidents happening in the public schools, we as chirstian parents have decioded to homeschool our children. my search for a good curriculum and how to go about it has led me to you. i am still in the learning and info gathering process. Your blog is a blessing to me. however i am finding it difficult to actually start putting things into action. i admit, am a bit confused. and am in a struggle to balance daily activities and homeschool. not enough support from anyone, as people don’t believe in this system of education . hope to improve with your help and encouragement. God Bless.

  7. Hi,
    I am a teacher and I actually use your website to get ideas. You are a wonderful teacher and your children are so lucky to have you. I am inspired by all of your creativity.
    I’ll keep coming back to your site!

  8. Hi! Just wanted to share an awesome free download that you could add to your letter of the week. Thingamakid.com has a free download call A-Z Scripture Coloring Sheets…and if you get their Cd it comes with all the scriptures on the sheets :) Fun and Scripture!

  9. Your daughter is so proud of all of her work! She is beaming through all of her pictures! I love all of your activities and we are huge fans of the pinboard in our home. I really like how you include a bible verse with your letter activity too–very wonderful!

  10. Hi was wondering about posting pictures of your kids, aren’t you concerned about that? I wanted to set up our own homeschool blog but was concerned. The pictures are a big help to see how you organize, arrange, and create the items you have made. What are your thought on this? Also I just love your stuff. I have purchased the LOTW and K4 and use them all the time. Thanks so much. I love seeing the beautiful, blessed creations you come up with. You inspire us all.

    Amy,

    I purchased both the Letter of the Week Curriculum and the K4 Curriculum, but I can’t seem to find the memory bracelets. I would love to have access to them if that is possible.

    Thanks!
