Preschool Corner: Letter K ... Kites and Kangaroos

Welcome to our letter K week ... all about Kites.  Unfortunately, weather did not permit us actually flying a kite this week.  (We did this unit back in February)

{David is 3 years, 11 months old}

Kite coloring page from 1plus1plus1equals1.

Silly boy!  He can do these coloring pages all by himself now once I identify the color words.  His coloring is still a bit sloppy though, but greatly improved from the first of our school year!

Kite cutting.  All of our Kite printables came from Confession of a Homeschooler's LOTW curriculum.

K dot marker page.

Kite puzzle.

Kite size sorting.

Kite number writing.  We are working on writing 0-10.  He traces one, the writes one on his own.

Kite color bead stringing.  I made this up on my own.  We taped matching pipe cleaners to each color kite and then put beads (to match) on the pipe cleaners.  This activity took a while and he got kind of bored with it at the end.

K uppercase/lowercase sorting. 

Kite patterning activity.  

Spelling KITE and kite.  

Letter K poke page. 

Kite pre-writing tracing. 

Playdough K. 

Still improving with our playdough letters.  Getting better each week! 

K is for King craft. 

RRSP bible verse: "Keep your tongue from evil." Psalm 34:13.  This was a short one and David learned it easily.

Claire likes doing the Kindergarten activities with this program. 

Bible verse craft. 

Our K board.

love the King page. Do you change your board each week? What do you do with all the papers?? I'm on "b" and starting to wonder!

Stef ... I do change my board each week. I mainly just put everything up there to photograph and then leave it up until the next week is complete. I have been 3 hole punching all the completed papers and putting them in a binder. I don't know why I keep everything but I do. I keep the letter curriculum (that I can re-use with my younger child) in a file folder.

I love the beads on the end of the kites! Great idea!

We do the letter of the week as well. I plan do use this idea when we come back around to k. Or maybe over the summer.

This looks like a great week! My son isn't a big fan of coloring and his pages look very similar :-)
