Teachers should also keep encouraging children throughout the process.
Letter recognition and letter identification
The next step after tracing and writing is teaching the children how to identify the letter k from a word or a phrase. This is where the student start to understand why they are learning to draw the letter. Teachers should write words or phrases that consist of the letter k and have the kids attempt letter identification and letter recognition. The children should also be taught how to differentiate the uppercase letter k from the lowercase letter k. Explaining the different use cases for capital vs lowercase can help cement understanding.
Tracing words and phrases
It is now time to improve students understanding by learning how to trace full words or phrases that begin with the letter k and contain additional letters from the alphabet. Think about the words like knock, king, kind, know, etc.. Students must be able to write the phrase "Knock" clearly and concisely to demonstrate their mastery of the letter k.
Emphasizing the value of spacing when writing letters is also crucial. Children should therefore leave enough space between each letter to make it simple to read. They should also make sure that each k they write is the same size.
