Welcome back to the Kinder Club blog! Each week we will focus on a letter of the alphabet and share fun activities and tips to help reinforce a variety of kindergarten readiness skills.

This week’s letter is Xx!

X is for x-ray and xylophone!

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.  

Mrs. K. went on a letter hunt looking for things that start with the letter X. X is a tricky letter to find as not many words start with it. If you can’t find anything that starts with X, try finding something that ENDS with it. How many things can you find? What was your favorite item that you found today?

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: X is for eXtra practice. Pick one skill that is hard for you to do and practice it this week. It could be learning to tie your shoes, reciting your address or following directions. Practicing a skill turns it into a routine or habit which makes it easier for you to do. It’s okay to still make mistakes and ask for help when practicing something. Mistakes help us learn and learning is fun!
