Finger and Pencil Tracing
Trace letter K's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter.  Invite the children to do the same on your choice of coloring page  or handwriting practice worksheet.   Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil  and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers (on the upper right corner) that help them trace the letter correctly.   During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

*Find the letter K's:  Have the children find all the letter K's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first.  Visit each child to make sure they have identified the letter K's and then discuss the locations with the poster.

Coloring or Painting Activity:  
Encourage the children to color the letter K and kite image.
