Letter K Activities

Instructor: Grace Pisano

Grace has a bachelor's degree in history and a master's degree in teaching. She previously taught high school in several states around the country.

One of the most important academic lessons in the preschool or kindergarten classroom is exposure to the letters of the alphabet. In this activities asset, you will find activities to help your students learn about the letter K.

Teaching the Letter K

Whether you choose to spend a week of instruction on each letter or teach several at the same time, students benefit from plenty of practice sounding, identifying, and creating each letter. With the activities in this resource, your students will have the chance to move, create and explore using the letter K. These activities are designed with preschool and kindergarten students in mind, and there are options for individual and group work.

Move Your Body

In this activity, students will create the letter K with their bodies. Begin by asking students if they can create the letter K with only their fingers (easiest way - pointer finger on one hand and pointer and middle finger on the other hand). Allow them to share their variations.

Then, put students into groups of three. Ask the students to create the shape of a K with their bodies in the most creative way they can. Within their groups, students might try to each create a K or they could work together to create a larger K. After a few minutes, go around the room and ask each group to share what they came up with.

After this, ask students if they are ready for a challenge. Help them create a very large K using every student in the class. This will likely involve students laying on the ground to make a K. You might snap a photo and pull it out at the end of the year, when students move on to or graduate from kindergarten.

K is for King

Students will decorate the letter K to make it look like a king. Begin by handing students a piece of copy paper with a large block letter K on it and a smaller piece of yellow construction paper cut into the shape of a crown. Have students first decorate the crown and the letter. They can use standard coloring materials, or you can bring out fun craft items for the crown, like sequins or shiny plastic gems.
