Preschool at Home ~ Letter K

Each week I will share 2-3 posts sharing our home preschool learning.  This post is only sharing our letter focused work. If we have a theme of the week, it will be a separate post too.  All of our general play based learning will be in a final weekly wrap up post called, “Learning with Ladybug.”  I am separating out the posts to make them easier for people to find down the road when searching for specific letter/theme activities.  See our entire home preschool plan here!

{disclaimer ~ affiliate links are used in this post}

We are continuing to have a letter focus each week, and for our first week back to school we picked up where we left off and began with Letter K!

My favorite part of our letter study is definitely our ABC Baskets.  I love how much she enjoys digging through them.  We play a lot together during the week exploring the contents.Home Preschool -6645

She doesn’t ask to do the lacing much, but she did this week and completed the entire kite!

With a little help from Momma! She gets easily frustrated with lacing.

CRAFTS

Since my girl loves to do guided crafts with me, I am trying to choose 2 per week that either connect to our letter of the week or our theme {if we have a special theme}.  This week I chose to make a kite based off of what I saw in this post, and from the idea in our Home Art Studio Rose Windows.

I sealed the colors in between wax paper when she was done.

I just drew a kite shape on cardstock and cut 2 out for her.  She painted each one.

The next day we glued it all together and I laminated it for her, and we added a string.

She was pretty bummed that it wasn’t a flying kite, but she spun around and figured out to make it fly! I showed her how pretty it looked in the window, and she liked that!

I also chose a Koala craft, which she chose to paint glittery gold!

I cut it out for her, {she cut one arm and then asked me to finish it}, and she helped me with the glue.

She chose to give him a sad face and when I asked her why, she said, “Because his tree is broke.” Love my girl.Home Preschool -6633

 


PRINTABLES

I created a binder with all of the printables I chose and allowed her to flip through and choose something to do.  It wasn’t until the last day that I had to do some major encouraging to get her to do a letter activity with me.

I was surprised to see that she enjoyed a letter maze, since she had lost interest in these mostly.  I think the Q tip was the ticket!

I wanted to add in a few new alphabet printables to see if Ladybug enjoyed them.  Right around the time I was choosing, I got an email from Lavinia who offered to send me her letter packs for free {she sells the on TPT}.  I instantly saw a few activities in the over 80 page file that I thought my girl would enjoy!  I was right on most of my choices!  The activities shown below are all from her Letter K pack which is available here. The packs are a bit pricey, so if you want to be sure you would use it, she has an entire Letter B pack for free here.

She loved the “letter soup” as we called it.  She used a Q tip to paint all of the upper and lower case K’s the correct colors.

I love this simple sentence building activity, and so did Ladybug.  We did it together many times on the first day and she went back to it a few times on her own. Home Preschool -6300

We added in our swatter to help isolate words as she read.

She loved the activity below WAY more than I expected.  She had to find only the words that start with K and color those.  She loved going through them all with me and telling me yes or no!  It took her 2 days to complete them all and I helped her color a couple.Home Preschool -6309

 

I decided to try a different version of letter tracing to see if she liked it better, she did!  She didn’t choose it, but when I encouraged her and gave her pink and purple markers, she dove right in and enjoyed it!

ABC Find It! is a favorite still, so we had fun with that of course!

Digging in rice to find her cards is FUN!Home Preschool -5305

We displayed them in her pocket chart when we were finished…Home Preschool -6543

 

Our All About Reading Pre lesson for lowercase k was a kite, which she was thrilled about!

Our finished Letter K work!  The little flip book at the top was one activity she didn’t care for, so I colored it and we read it together {it was also from the Letter K bundle I linked to earlier}.
