The very first thing we did was cut out two big visuals, one for the capital B and one for the lower case b. This way we could visually look at them all day long. I decided to display them right in the entry way so we had to walk past them a lot! I just drew some bubble letters on construction paper and cut them out. They aren’t perfect but they work.

Visual stimulation

Every morning after breakfast I would get on YouTube and pop up a couple videos about B. You can type in the letter B and get a list or you can click these links

Crafts

Felt butterfly’s

I found this idea on Pinterest but there are a ton! You can make them out of coffee filters and all sorts of things. I made my own stencils and then traced and cut the wings I cut the fingers off a a knitted glove and hot glued the wings on. The kids could put them on their fingers and fly them around the room. They loved them!

Another craft we did was making bug jars. I drew the jars and then we dipped our fingers into paint and made finger prints on our jars. I waited for them to dry and then I made them into bugs! It was super cute and the kids really enjoyed this too!

Reading material

I found an amazing list of books on Pinterest. They have books for letters A-z. Check it out here.

Worksheets and letter books

Here and there throughout the week we did our worksheets. Caliger loves the letter hunt! And all the kids carried their letter books around all day!

I’ll take this moment to mention that I do not make the kids trace letters. There Is plenty of time for us to work on writing and a way that we get ready for that is through fine motor songs, sign language, and fine motor activities. I do not want to burn the kids out and get them started to soon so I might mention it to them but I never make them do it.

Activities
