We love collecting math ideas for each letter of the alphabet. Check out our hands on math for preschoolers for the letter K!
1 – Colors, Matching – Kite File Folder Game
Here’s a great activity for your young preschooler – match the kites with this colorful file folder game. My Three enjoyed this simple activity — and I think it’s something a two-year-old would like too. We laminated the pieces and attached Velcro dots. You can view my original post and get the printable here.
2- Sorting – Sort the Keys
Get out some old keys or just empty your key ring. Let your preschooler choose how to sort them. She can sort by size, shape, type of hole, etc.
3 – Number Recognition, Counting, One-to-One Correspondence – Kite Count & Clip Cards
When you print count and clip cards on cardstock and laminate them, they’re a durable way to practice counting and sharpen those fine motor skills. My Three loved counting the kites up to 6. After that he wanted my help and clipped each number — I helped him recognize the numbers past 10. View my original post and get your printable here.
4- Ordering, Size – Order the Kites
Here’s the other part to my file folder game I mentioned above. We put all the kites in a pile. Then my Three found the smallest kite from the set and put it in its place (using Velcro dots). He continued in this way until he finished the activity. View my original post and get your printable here.
5 – Patterns – Kite Patterns
I printed these pattern strips and gave my Three some colorful kite squares. Together we worked at matching the patterns. The idea of even a simple ABAB pattern hasn’t “clicked” with him yet, so this was a great introduction. I recommend this type of activity if your little one isn’t quite ready to complete his own patterns.
6 – Addition – Kite Roll & Cover
I labeled dice with small numbers (0,1,1,1,2,3) and took turns rolling them with my Four. He loved covering the answers with our power magnets. The best part? I made three levels of this game, so you can use it with your preschooler, kindergartner, or first grader! View my original post and get your printables here.
