What a fantastic way to enhance your letter studies! This unit has a cute koala theme and contains many fun ways to study the letter K. You will find a “write the room”, graphic organizers, writing papers, games, worksheets and more!
In this packet you will find 3 different sets of write the room cards, all things that begin with the letter k. You can find and use the one that best fits your needs. You may still find uses for the other sets, for word walls, vocabulary words, pocket chart activities. You will also find a “word bank” with the words. If you put those in page protectors and inside a folder (the version with the brads for holding hole punched pages), you have an “on the go” mini word wall for independent writing or another center!
You will find several different pocket chart activities that can also be used as center activities. Another activity involves matching upper and lowercase letter koalas. There is also another pocket chart activity that has the students matching a koala with a CVC word to a koala with a matching picture. Also, there are koalas (you attach to a popsicle stick) to use for word stretching, counting sounds in words, sounding out and writing CVC words with dry erase boards, or even as story starters! There is a full group game helping the koala find /k/ sound words. You will find Quiz, Quiz, Trade cards (and directions for doing this game), I have Who has, Graphic Organizers, writing paper with and without prompts. You will also find 3 different types of Write the Room answer sheets, worksheets for identifying objects with the beginning sound of /k/, and writing k practice sheets. There
