Practice the skill within an activity

Create a kindergarten kit

  • Write the uppercase letter K and the lowercase letter k on a whiteboard, name the letters, and have the children write the K and k in the air with their fingers.
  • Show the children your kindergarten kit, a bag labeled with the big letter cards (see below), and explain that the kit should only have in it pictures with the letter K or k.
  • Mix up the picture cards (see below) and have the children choose a picture card and name the picture (support as needed).
  • Decide together whether or not the picture has a letter K on it.
    • If the picture has a letter K put it in the kindergarten kit.
    • If the picture does not have a letter K set it to the side.
  • Repeat until all of the picture cards have been chosen.
  • Have the children circle the uppercase letter K and lowercase k on the picture cards in the kit.
  • Explain how each item in the kit will help them in kindergarten.
    • Kleenex: You will need Kleenex in kindergarten in case you have a runny nose.
    • Kiss from mom: Your mom will want to kiss you goodbye on your first day of kindergarten.
    • Key: Your teacher will need a key to open the door of your kindergarten classroom.
    • Kindness: It is always important to be kind to the other children!
    • KIT-KAT® candy bar (optional): You might need a snack in kindergarten. Your snack could be a KIT-KAT® candy bar!
  • Allow the children to make their own kindergarten kit using a set of picture cards and a baggie (optional).
  • Have the children say, “K in the Kindergarten Kit” as they put each K picture in their kit, but have the children discard the picture of the dog and bug because they do not have a K.

Apply the skill

Identify the target letter

  • Cut out the small letter cards (see below) and mix them up.
  • Have the children choose a letter card and together identify the letter.
    • If the letter is a K (or lowercase k) then add the letter to the kindergarten kit.
    • If the letter is not a K then place it in a discard pile.
  • Write the target letters K and k on the back of the small letter cards.
  • Help the children write the uppercase letter K and lowercase k on the back of the picture cards for their kindergarten kit (provide support as needed).
