Formation Focus
ELL Support
Picture it! Explain to learners that the lowercase cursive k follows the same basic letter shape as lowercase cursive h, but instead of continuing down into a final curve under stroke, it changes from the moment it starts to trace up and curve over and back. Consider having learners write a series of joined and unjoined lowercase cursive h’s and k’s.
Curve under, loop back, slant down.
Trace up, curve over and back, slant down. Curve under to join.
Trace and write.

Practice Masters
• Have students complete the three rows of practice. Encourage them to think about and refer to the formation strokes. Remind them to begin each letter at the starting dot.
Proceed
• Explain the curve under joining stroke used for the letter. Have students use their pointer fingers to trace the letter groups provided. Then have them write the letter groups provided on the following lines.
• Have students identify any three- letter groups that are real words. Ask a volunteer to give a definition for the word kit.
Time Out to Evaluate
Ask students to consider the following questions to evaluate their formation of the new letter.
Does your k begin on the baseline? Does it curve under to the skyline?

Practice joining k and other letters you have learned. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Present
• Ask students to look at the manuscript and cursive example letters. Have them compare and contrast the two forms.
• Then focus on the cursive form of the letter, and ask questions that can be answered by viewing the letter. Where does the curve under stroke at the beginning of lowercase cursive letter k end? (at the skyline) After you slant back to the baseline, how far do you trace up? (to the midline) After you curve over and back, how do you finish the letter? (slant down right to the baseline, then curve under to join)
• Model the formation of the cursive letter while verbalizing the formation strokes. Then ask students to use the pointer finger on their writing hand to make the letter on their desks as you state the formation strokes.
Practice
• Have students look at the top of
the page. Ask a volunteer to read
the formation directions. Then ask specific questions regarding the formation, and have students refer to the directions for the answers.
• Read the label below the art and discuss.
Strokes Did you trace up to the midline to form the curve over stroke on the k?
