Activity suggestions to supplement the Letter K alphabet worksheets
- Serve a meal that highlights the K sound. Consider serving foods such as corn on the cob, kettle corn, candy, Cocoa Puffs, cornbread, corn dogs with ketchup and carrots. Although many of those words begin with the letter C, the initial sound of the word is the same as the sound made by the letter K, so it is correct for this activity.
- Write words with the letter K on index cards using a yellow or pink highlighter. Encourage your child to trace over the letter K with a blue highlighter each time he sees it to watch the K change color.
- Say a word and then ask your child to change it into a silly, nonsense word by substituting the first consonant sound with the K sound. For example, if you said the word “lunch,” your child would say “kunch.” Practice making the correct letter K sound will help your child learn to readily identify it.
- Read a book with your child and have him point to any word he sees with the letter K. Give him one point for each uppercase K and two points for each lowercase k and challenge him to get to 20 points.
Tips for using the Letter K tracing letters worksheets
- When writing the uppercase letter K, your child should pick up his pencil once while drawing this letter. After drawing the long vertical line, direct him to draw a “sideways uppercase V” that touches the first line at the dotted middle line in the center. Remind your child to keep his lines as straight as possible, since the letter K does not have any curves lines.
- Writing the lowercase letter k is similar to writing the uppercase letter K. After drawing the first vertical line, direct your child to draw a “sideways lowercase v.” The size and placement of the “sideways v” helps to distinguish a K from a k.
