Welcome back to the Kinder Club blog! Each week we will focus on a letter of the alphabet and share fun stories, activities and tips to help you get ready to make the big leap into Kindergarten.

This week’s letter is Cc!

C is for car, cat and cookie!

Can you trace the letter in the picture above with your finger? Can you write the letter on a piece of paper? Try writing the letter in uppercase and lowercase. Remember uppercase is BIG and lowercase is small.  

Click on the video below to listen to a silly story featuring a group of chalk friends and their drawings. How many times can you find the letter C in our story?

Thank you to Henry Holt & Co – MacMillan Publishers for allowing us to share this story with you.

Mrs. K went on a letter hunt in the library and found several items that start with the letter C. How many items can you find? What colors are your items?

If you picked up a Letter of the Week packet at the beginning of the month, have fun completing this week’s activities and stay tuned for next week’s letter.   

Kindergarten Readiness Tip: C is for cutting. Using scissors is a great activity to build your fine motor muscles that will help you grip pencils, crayons and even shoelaces! Practice your scissor skills this week by cutting pieces of scrap paper, junk mail or straws. You may only use scissors with your grown-up’s permission.
