"K" ACTIVITIES

"K" ART
CROWNS FOR KINGS
Take a piece of 9 x 12 construction paper and cut a zig-zag through the middle of the paper lengthwise.
Tape the two strips together with tape.
Let your child decorate his king's crown by gluing on glossy paper triangle shapes (to represent jewels).
When he is done, wrap the crown around his head and tape it to fit.
Let your child be King for a day and wear his/or her crown.
 
KLEENEX K's
If you don't want to make kisses, you could let your child glue small squares of Kleenex tissue on his K shape.
You can make this tissues K's 3-D by first having your child cover his K with glue.
Then give him a pencil and show him how to place the tissue square on top of the pencil's eraser.
Then, show him how to wrap the square around the end of the pencil and then press the pencil onto the glued K surface.
The tissue will adhere to the glue and your child will pull the pencil out to use again.
This activity takes a while to do but it is quite nice when it is finished.
 
K GAMES
 
COUNTING KITES
Find a book at the library about kites.
Go through the book with your child and encourage her to count kites.
Alternative: Make a bulletin board with kites and have your children count them.
"K" SORT
Make up some letter cards.
On four small index cards, print large capital K's.
On four more cards, print other capital alphabet letters, such as; D, T, B & A.
Mix up the cards and have your child find all the K cards.
 
"K" PICTURE SORT

Again, using small index cards, make four cards showing objects that begin with the letter K, such as, Kite, Key, King and Kangaroo. Print the word at the bottom of each card, using the capital K.
On four other cards, draw pictures of objects that start with D, T, B & A, such as; Dog, Top, Ball and Apple. Print the words at the bottom of each cards, using capital beginning letters.
Mix up the cards and have your child find all the pictures of words that begin with the letter "K"
Variation: You can play a third game using the letter cards and the picture cards.
Have your child take the picture cards and lay them out in a row on a table.
Then give him the K letter cards and have him place them under the picture cards that start with the letter "K".
