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 reinforce a variety of kindergarten readiness skills.

This week’s letter is Qq!

Q is for quack, queen and quilt!

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.  

Q is for quilt. Click on the video below to listen to Mrs. K. share a comforting story about a young girl and her favorite quilt. Who made the quilt for the little girl? Do you remember some of the ways that the little girl used her quilt? What happened at the end of our story?

Thank you to G.P. Putnam’s Sons – Penguin publishers for allowing us to share this story with you.

Mrs. K. went on a letter hunt looking for things that start with the letter Q. How many things did she find? Can you name them? How many things can you find? How many items were real? How many were pictures?

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: Q is for quiet listener. Listening to our parents, teachers and friends is a very important skill for school. At times, it can be very hard to listen and not interrupt or talk over our family, teachers and friends. The games listed below are fun ways to practice your listening skills.
