When I was 13, I had the opportunity to travel to Australia and hold a koala which was amazing. Having the opportunity to do that again with my kids would be a dream, but for now, we will settle for making these adorable koalas on a K shaped tree.
This activity will work on identifying the letter K and the sound it makes.

Teacher Tip

Just like we did with the letter N, come up with words that start with K sound. It is okay if these words are nonsense words or if they actually start with the letter C. While we are working on sounds, it is okay if they say cupcake when working on the letter K because while spelling may be wrong, the sound is correct and that the current focus.
