Tips for Teaching Letter K to Preschoolers & Kindergarteners
The letter K makes a /k/ sound as in: keep, kid, and kite. (And sounds the same as letter /c/ as in: cat, curl, and cute.)
The sound is a quick noise that cannot be stretched or prolonged. This /k/ sound is unvoiced and is made by sending a quick puff of air through the mouth. (The mouth position is similar to making a /g/ sound which is voiced.)
Additionally, when a K precedes the letter N, the K is silent as in: knife, knee, knob, knack.
Kindergarteners and preschoolers are usually in between the letter recognition stage and early reading. With that being said, stick with simple, familiar words that use the /k/ sound rather than the silent /kn/ words to avoid any letter/sound confusion.
