{Totally 3} Yummy Letter B (Printables)

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

This week was Yummy Letter B, for bananas and blueberries!  Thing 2 is really starting to enjoy the Yummy Letters and he gets excited to see what we will be making for each letter.

Handwriting:

This week, Thing 2 continued using the pre handwriting, and handwriting sheets that I made to go along with Yummy Letter Bb.  He is not interested in handwriting practice right now like he was a couple of weeks ago, so I am not pressuring him to complete the handwriting.  However, we do take the time to talk about the pictures and the letters we see.  I at least try to get him to trace the lines with his finger.

Letter Activity:

This week we continued with some of Thing 2’s favorite activities; including the letter maze and poking pages.

I also cut our pieces together to make the letters B and b.  I wrote the letters on our white board and had Thing 2 recreate the shape.  He did a great job and was super excited that he was able to do it.

Math:

We did lots of math activities this week. We started the week making the number one out of blueberries.  We also counted the blueberries.

Thing 2 worked on AB and ABB patterns.  I was glad to see that the patterns were relatively easy for him to do.

He also did a letters Bb roll and graph that I made for him. He immediately understood how to do this.  While he was working, I would periodically stop and ask him which one had the most, which column had the least, and so on.

We also talked about circles.  One day I had cut out three different size circles, a small triangle, and two different shaped rectangles, for him to create a snowman.  Before he put his snowman together, I had him identify all the different shapes.  We also put the shapes in order from largest to smallest.

I also did a car park game with Thing 2 that works on counting and number recognition.  I simply made a parking lot with the numbers 1-6. Then he would roll a die, count the number and drive his car to the appropriate parking spot.  You can get the printables I made of this activity {HERE}.

Pre Reading:

As in weeks past, I am continuing to read books to him, while taking time to have him locate the letters we have already talked about.

Recipe:

We made some super yummy blueberry muffins.  You can get the recipe for the muffins we used {HERE}.  Thing 2 and Thing 3 helped me make the yummy muffins.

What fun have you done with the letter B?
