ABC Book: Letter K

Blonde Warrior has been learning the formation and sound of each of his letters this year.  We have a handful of activities that we do together to reinforce these new skills, one of which is the creation of a homemade ABC Book.  Each week when he learns a new letter, we dedicate one day to do a paper craft of that letter.  At the end of the year, I will take all of these creations to an office supply store and have them spiral bound into a keepsake book.

This week, we are tackling "K".  For this particular craft, "K" is for "key."  I printed out the outline of a capital "K,"

gathered several random keys from around the house (I tried to find ones with unusual shapes.), put a bit of masking tape on the back of each one, and had him arrange them onto our work space.

He put the "K" on top of the keys.  While I held the paper in place for him, he was able to do a simple crayon rub to reveal a ghosted imprint of the keys.  

We moved the paper around a bit to "move" the keys to new locations on the "K."

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks to learn some helpful tips on teaching the ABCs.
