Letter "Kk" Week

Kick up your kicks: It's letter "K"!

Sorry no picture- camera decided to not work (or user error...) Shall I KICK it to the curb, let a KANGAROO pounce on it, or a KITTEN eat it? ;)

What you'll need: 
  • black paper plates
  • black and pink construction paper
  • white yarn
  • googly eyes 
  • nontoxic glue

Prep: Cut the black construction in large triangles and the pink construction paper into smaller triangles for ears. Also cut the pink construction paper into oval for noses. Cut the yarn in four inch pieces.

Instructions: Give each smartypant a paper plate, two black triangles, two pink triangles, one pink oval, two googly eyes, and six pieces of yarn. Instruct your "little" to glue the pink triangles onto the black triangles and then the black triangles onto the back of the paper plate to make the ears. Glue the pink oval and the eyes onto the front of the paper plate. Then glue the pieces of yarn near the nose to form the whiskers. Make sure to talk about the different shapes (circles, triangles, ovals, lines) of the different pieces of the kitten. Meow!

Kettle Corn

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
Directions: Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, stir in the sugar and popcorn. Cover, and shake the pot constantly to keep the sugar from burning. Once the popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds, remove the pot from the heat and continue to shake for a few minutes until the popping has stopped. Pour into a large bowl, and allow to cool, stirring occasionally to break up large clumps.

Letter Hunt: Your letter bucket is filled with kittens, kangaroos, kites, koalas, kings, etc.

Fine Motor: KEEP it in the cube:
Have your smartypants put the poms in- let them color-coordinate too!

Books: Below are a few suggested readings for your little ones. You should be able to find most of these books at your local library or around the house.
  • The Kite by Harry Behn
  • The Kitten At Play by William Wordsworth
  • Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? by Eric Carle
  • Kipper by Mick Inkpen
  • The Frog Who Would Be King by Kate Walker
"Little" Tip of the Week: There are so many fun activities to do this week!  Weather permitting, flying a kite would be the perfect day for your fun, little one!  Is it raining, or (gasp) snowing and you're stuck indoors?  How about pretending to by kittens, kangaroos, kings, and/or koalas.  Talk about the sounds they make, imitate the way they move, what they eat, etc. If they don't already know how, teach your smartypants how to blow kisses.  Who doesn't want to catch a kiss from your kiddo?
