Kinder Club – Letter R

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 Rr!

R is for rat, red and rock !

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 hear Mrs. K. share a creative story about the alphabet featuring lots of rocks!

Thank you to Tricycle Press – Penguin Random House publishers for allowing us to share this story with you.

Mrs. K. went on a letter hunt today and found several items that start with the letter R. How many things can you find? Were any of your items red? Were any round?

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

Kindergarten Readiness Tip: R is for recognition! Recognition is a big word that means knowing and remembering upon seeing. Practice recognizing your letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Look at the picture below. Do you recognize the letters, numbers, colors and shapes shown?
