## More About Words With K

The best way to approach a list of words with the letter K is to break them down into CHUNKS. Perhaps you’ll start with shorter words like JACK or KAYAK. They’re much easier to remember than longer K words like PSYCHOKINETIC or KYMOGRAPHY. This approach certainly makes sense when teaching K words for kids.

It also helps to think in terms of building BLOCKS. For instance, BACK can expand into BACKPACK or QUARTERBACK. You can further grow your vocabulary with words borrowed from other languages. KAFFIR limes are a citrus fruit native to Southeast Asia. You might also know the term KAMIKAZE from Japanese, which literally translates as “divine wind.” On a lighter note, examine positive K words like KINDNESS and KUDOS too.

When you want to KICK it up another notch in specificity, our list of words that start with K is a handy source of word KNOWLEDGE to KIBITZ about. Flipping things around, CRACK open our collection of words that end in K. It doesn’t take a JACK of all trades to enjoy that kind of HANDIWORK.
