I don't have much advice from the academics/activities standpoint (never had a TK student). For the general routines though I would try giving him a buddy or two from students who enjoy "helping" to show him the routines (put your lunchbox here, follow me over here, etc) for the first few days.

When you're working with the whole class reading (especially the assessments) maybe he could have some exploratory "station" tub? Simple things like blocks/legos, fine motor building activities, etc. from things you already have in your classroom.
I would include him as much as possible in whatever your K students are already doing. It'll make it easier on you, and he might rise to the occasion in some aspects! For example, the rest of your students might be writing more, but he could at least draw a picture related to the same topic and add the emergent level writing (lines, scribbles, random letters, wherever he may be on the writing spectrum).
