Kite-flyin K!

Activities for Letter K and Number 11 have been completed!  Way to go Butterfly!
Almost half way through the alphabet and my little girl is still not bored.  "More! More!" she begs.  I'm not complaining ;)

Here's what we did:

Using our review cards, Sandpaper Tactile Letters, and the LeapFrog Fridge Magnetics - finding out the new letter and number.

Practicing writing K in the paint bag and the salt box.

Charting the next letter in the alphabet by placing it's sticker on top.
And now that we have reached 10 on our chart, we continued our numbers on the back of the folder!

Driving/ Tracing a car on the K road.

Using Alphie Robot's letter and number cards.

Making a K on the Peg Board with pegs and coloured elastic bands.

Making a K out of straws.

The next pages in our Alphabet Craft Book, K for Kangaroo and k for keys.

Butterfly coloured two number ones and then we cut them out and glued them together to make an eleven!

Using a Giant Push Pin on the carpet, poking holes on the lines of K to practice writing the letter, in another kind of way.

Making K's with the plastic ice cubes, lining them up within the lines.

Then using the Letter Builders to build the K's.

Then decorating the same K's with kitten stickers and homemade kites!

Homemade magnet Pom-Poms for the magnet sheet, on an old baking pan.

Spelling Kite.  This time, on her own free will, Butterfly matched the lowercase letters on the uppercase sheet and vice versa.  My hubby and I were impressed!

I made this worksheet free hand (characters are stickers) and then laminated it.  Find which kite belongs to which animal by following the tangled up strings and write the animal's correct kite number.
Butterfly liked this a lot, erased the dry erase marker when she completed it and then did it all over again!

Two more sheets from our Kumon Let's Fold book!

Carson Dellosa's scissor cutting page, and a writing wipe-off practice booklet.

Building K's with our Bendaroos sticks.

Clipboard handwriting work.

Pattern Matching

Sizes in order


Cutting/Gluing Pattern worksheet

Matching numbered clothespins on number kites.

Colouring sheets

I made these numbered kites and with mini clothespins, Butterfly pinched the same amount of clothespins on the kite string as the number on the kite.

Kind of like the bows on a kite!

Butterfly wanted to make her own kite, so she decorated a diamond cut-out and we found ribbons in our recycled craft box to put on bows.  She then proceeded to run around the house "flying" her kite! :)

Laminated wipe-off Number Practice sheets.

Our scavenger hunt, filling our box with K items.  We have:

Ketchup, Koala, Kangaroo, a (hershey) Kiss toy, Keys, Kittens, and King Ken doll!

Our next Nature Journal entry.

All K for Kite worksheets and print-out activities are from Confessions of a Homeschooler's site.
