7 Ways To Use Cursive K Worksheets
K, especially lowercase K, can be tricky for young students of cursive, so here are 7 ways to use my cursive K worksheets and help kids perfect their technique.
7. Practicing The Motions Of Uppercase And Lowercase K
While tracing might seem like the natural place to start, why not let your students practice making the pencil movements for uppercase and especially lowercase K first?
Using blank guideline spaces on my worksheets, encourage the children to make parts of the letter first.
For uppercase, that could include practicing making the initial line downward and then the loop inward and swoop down and out.
Have them make one motion, then the other, for a few lines at least, and tell them not to worry about making it perfect – it’s about getting their pencil used to the movements.
For the lowercase cursive K, which will likely be the trickier of the two, have students make the initial upward loop and downward line.
Then have them practice the outward loop, tuck in, and swoop out.
Again, it’s not about perfection or staying within the lines (although they should be able to stay somewhat within the guidelines while making the shapes).
6. Tracing Uppercase And Lowercase Cursive K
Tracing is the first step in perfecting the shapes of their K’s, and my worksheets provide ample opportunity for students to practice that.
Whether you’re concentrating solely on cursive uppercase K or lowercase, or you’d like to practice tracing them one after the other, my worksheets are excellent tools for success.
In fact, you might wish to print out multiple copies of these tracing pages per student, so that they can get plenty of practice in.
5. Writing Uppercase And Lowercase K Independently
Once students have traced K to reach a certain point of confidence, they can start to write the letter independently, using everything they have learned to that point.
There is lots of blank guideline space for independent writing, but of course, you can print off more sheets to accommodate further practice.
Again, they can practice writing the letter K exclusively in uppercase, exclusively in lowercase, and one after the other with my helpful worksheets.
4. Tracing Lowercase K Linked To Itself
Because lowercase K, in particular, is tricky, you could use some of the blank guideline space on the corresponding worksheet to create traceable cursive K’s linked to each other.
Write out the dotted-line K’s and then make copies for your children or class.
Then, you could also encourage your students to try and write out the linked K’s independent of any tracing.
3. Tracing Lowercase K Linked To Other Letters
One of the pages of my cursive K worksheets is devoted to linking lowercase K to other letters of the alphabet.
But you could take this and expand upon it, making a separate worksheet where children trace K linked to every letter of the alphabet.
And why leave out uppercase K? Create a worksheet where students trace uppercase K linked to every letter of the alphabet, too.
2. Tracing Other Letters Linked To K
Of course, not every situation where students write K will feature K followed by a letter.
In fact, in most situations, the word will include K somewhere in the middle, so it’s important for students to practice linking other letters to K.
You could use some of the blank guideline space to create traceables linking all the vowels to lowercase K, or indeed, every letter of the alphabet.
1. Tracing Three- And Four-Letter Words That Start With K
I have two worksheets that cover tracing three- and four-letter cursive words that start with K, which are good practice not just for this letter in particular, but for learning the entire alphabet.
And in fact, you could find some empty guideline space and create traceable words of five or six letters that begin with K.
Or you could create traceables for words that contain the letter K, so that students can practice linking other letters both to and from K.
