Letter of the Week: Hands on Letter Kk Activities

Letter K has kind of taken over the shelves! We had so much fun with these works,  I just couldn't bare to remove them from the shelves just yet and left them up for two weeks! Y really enjoyed these and you guys, the happiness on his face when he sees these works - it makes all of that laminating and printing so worth it! 

Last week, I mentioned that I was going to rework our printables and how I would approach our shelves for this series. I tried to include a few more game and movement works and it was really worth it. I was getting a bit stressed about the works myself. After observing Y, his interests, and the way he uses his toys, I was really glad with the result of last week's Letter K trays. Today, I am showing the majority of the works we covered, but I still haven't been able to get all of the photographs! He just had so much fun, so we kept going! 

Here are the wonderful letter K activities we had up on the shelves last week! 

Psst! Don't forget to stop by Mumma Diaries youtube channel and see all of the wonderful works Amruta shared for the Letter K!

I wanted to create some fun decorations for our homeschool area. I hung images of letter K animals (kittens, koalas, kangaroos) on display for Y.

This kangaroo activity was a real hit with Y! He was very excited for it and it was very simple to set up. I used kangaroo printables from the Letter K printable pack, laminated them, then taped wooden barbecue skewers to the backs of the kangaroos. I taped the background onto a florist block. Y had to poke the kangaroos into the foam block.

This work was simply a way to work on fine motor skills and creativity. Y absolutely loved it! 

We had another kangaroo based activity. We learned about joeys (baby kangaroos), and then Y practiced putting cut out joeys into the pouch of a kangaroo. I had laminated all of the joeys and mom kangaroo. The mom kangaroo had a slit in the pouch and was glued onto a piece of cardboard. Y could then put the joey into the mom kangaroo's pouch.

Letter K water writing - Y had to erase the letters that I drew on his chalkboard with a paintbrush dipped in water. We did this many times and he had an absolute blast!

Additional ideas:

Prepare a kiwi snack - I didn't get a chance to photograph this, but Y loves, loves, loves to help out in the kitchen. We had a few kiwis in the house, and he got to practice peeling and slicing them. 

We also did a lot of 'K is for Kitchen' type of works. Really, all that meant was he helped me to cook. A lot. As in everyday. This last week, the kiddo requested french fries for lunch Every Single Day. Instead, I convinced him to make baked sweet potato 'fries'. He would do all of the work himself except for slicing the potatoes and handling the oven. It was a wonderful bonding experience and very educational!
