The Letter K

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

K is for King - Plan a special king for the day schedule.

K is for Knight - Design a unique shield.

K is for Keys - Hide several keys around an area for your child to find, count, sort, etc.

Check out several ideas for Letter K week from Our Homeschool Fun.

K is for Kindness - Brainstorm ways to show kindness to others.

K is for Kansas. Work with your student to study a state.

Krazy Kites, Kool Aid, and Kabobs are just some of the K fun that Brandy shared with us.

Sewing School made Kaleidescopes with the clever kids in her creative classroom.

Delightful Learning made delightful tasting Kiwi Kabobs.

K is for Kangaroos and Koalas. Enjoy these ideas from Our Alphabet Adventures.

Tell some Knock, Knock jokes!

Play Kick Ball or Kick the Can.

Kids, Kit Kats, KFC, and Kindergarten all added to The Home Teachers K Adventures.

K is for Kazoo, Keyboard, and Kettledrum - make some K music!

Fifth Street Academy has a post committed to the letter K.

Make your own Kazoo:
Take a paper towel roll and cut it in half or use a complete toilet paper roll. Tape a small piece of wax paper around the end of the tube. Place a piece of construction paper to fit around the tube. Decorate it. Take a pencil and make a hole about 1 inch from where the wax paper is. Make your own music by humming in the open end of the tube.
For some fast food K's try a kid's meal or a Krispy Kreme donut :)

Great "K" Books

Kipper's Kite - This is a simple toddler book that has great use of the letter K.

The Kissing Monster - I like any book that gives me an excuse to get in some extra Mommy kisses.

The Very Boastful Kangaroo - This is a great book about overcoming adversity done in a light hearted style.

Kipper's A to Z : An Alphabet Adventure - An alphabet book with a favorite toddler guide... Kipper.

Counting Kisses - Another book that gets in some extra kisses for you child.


  1. Wonderful ideas.

    Have a nice weekend.

  2. Awesome! Our homeschool co-op starts this week, and I am teaching a preschool class where we have been going through the alphabet. We started half way through the year last school year, and K is our letter this week! WooHoo!
