To complement the time-series observations of the Kepler space mission in the K2 fields, spectroscopic observations for hundreds of thousands of stars in these fields are hugely important. LAMOST, a Chinese 4-meter class telescope equipped with 4000 fibers on the focal plane, is an ideal facility to fulfill this task. The LAMOST-K2 project was approved in the autumn of 2015 and observations commenced during the 2015-2016 winter season. The project will initially cover 6 of the first 10 observed K2 campaigns, and may be extended to include later K2 campaigns. We describe the project and introduce the current progress of observation with this poster presentation.
