Here are some highlights from our “Letter of the Week” Letter B unit (read about our entire homeschool curriculum here) All these activities are designed for younger learners: tots through kindergarten. Fofo is 5, and The Bear is 3. Enjoy!
The girls loved this as their sensory activity for the letter B. It’s a simple matching game from a sensory bin to the poster, as well as listening and pointing to pictures.
I bought these nice and small dry erase boards from Target on clearance so we do our name writing practice on them. Don’t worry. I wrote “Lilly.” She is 3.5, not a genius. Close but not quite 😉
Next up was rainbow writing , which is just writing the letter over and over and over. The various colors make it look like a rainbow.
Next up, we worked on ABC animals which I didn’t great photos of, but got better ones with the letter A 🙂 For this, the girls cut and pasted bears onto the letter B. It’s such a cute unit.
Copying B words and matching them with the corresponding picture.
SHE READ BUS!! It was so awesome. After she spelled each word, I asked what it spelled and bus was the one she “read.”
Fofo working on her ABC book, an idea I borrowed from Fofo’s 3K classroom. They stamped the letter B with a bear stamp.
Bear works on her phonics book by cutting out and gluing pictures that start with the B sounds. Fofo had magazine pages and had to figure out which item on the page started with B.
I am the least crafty person on earth but I had this bus
craft saved from Learn, Create, Love so I printed it out. Probably not Pinterest worthy but they colored, cut, and glued it all by themselves. Well, I may have cut out Lilly’s bus wheels since she got a little frustrated. Simple crafts rule for easily frustrated kids.
The girls baked bread with Papa as another “craft” and baked banana bread with me. That recipe is here!
There you have it, our letter B unit. All the sit down work is just a small portion of our day and when the girls want to stop, we stop. Not every kid wants to do sit down work but they really enjoy it. For now anyway.
Thanks for reading!
