Here's what we did for Mercedes' letter K themed week.
I wrote the big and little letter K on a piece of paper and we practiced making the "K" sound.
Mercedes traced the big and little letter K on the worksheet I made for her.
She colored a letter K coloring page.
And practiced signing the letter K using ASL.
We added the big and little letter K to our flashcard collection.
I filled a busy bag with items that begin with the letter K: Foam K, Kool-aid, ketchup, keys, kangaroo, wooden k, Hershey's kiss, and a kalidascope. Mercedes pulled each item out one by one and practiced making the "k" sound as she said what each item was.
She played with the new kalidascope I bought for her at the dollar store.
She made the big letter K with messy lipstick kisses.
She made the little letter k with Hershey's Kisses.
We played pet shop and rescued lots of kittens.
We made homemade play-doh and colored and scented it with Kool-aid.
We made key imprints on the play-doh.
And letter K imprints in the play-doh.
And key chain imprints in the play-doh.
We made Kool-aid.
And froze some of it to make Kool-aid slushies.
And we made Kool-aid popsicles.
We tried to make homemade Kool-aid taffy and failed miserably. I figured out afterwards that my candy thermometer was broken so it cooked at the wrong temperature. It still tasted delicious. We snacked on it for a while and then threw it away. Bummer!
And the girls painted with Kool-aid paint.
