Alphabet Activity:  Alphabet Letter K is for Kitten

Present, display and distribute your option of alphabet printable materials listed in the materials column.

* Finger and Pencil Tracing:
Using the activity worksheet, trace letter K in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter.  Invite the children to do the same on their worksheet.
    
Encourage the children to trace the letter with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil and demonstrate the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly.  During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

*Find the letter K's:  
Have the children find all the letter K's in upper and lower case on the and encourage them to circle them first.  Visit each child to make sure they have identified the letter K's and then discuss the locations. 

*Coloring Activity:
Encourage the children to color the small images images in the worksheet before pasting on the mini-book.
