Letter B

Today is Letter B day or rather this week can be Letter B week!  I know it took me a few days to get the letter a completed. As long as it is done by the time the next letter comes around I think everything should be fine 🙂

Our activity for letter b is to make a Circle Bear Face. The activity says you need an old CD to use as a backing, but we will just glue it to our construction paper. So, this is what you need;

  • brown paper or white paper
  • markers, crayons, paint
  • scissors and glue
  • coffee can, small tin can or cup (to trace circles) unless you can draw a perfect circle free hand like all mothers! lol
  • Or you can print out the template from here

What to do:

  • If you print out the template then follow those directions, if not then
  • Use your coffee can and cup to trace 1 big circle (face), two medium sized circles (ears) and three small circles (eyes, and nose).
  • Use glue to paste the big circle to the paper, but leave the top of the head unglued because you will then
  • glue the ear circles behind the head
  • glue the eyes and nose on the face
  • now you can let your child color or decorate the bear face however they want
  • Make sure to leave some space to write in the letter Bb

*While you are working with your child or children on this project you can talk with them about the shape of the bears face, ears, nose and eyes. How they are circle shapes just like a bouncing ball. You can talk about how to sort the shapes from smallest to largest or vice versa. Brown begins with the letter B. And of course Bear begins with the letter B.

 

Now we can integrate letter B throughout your B day:

  1. Breakfast begins with B so you could have Bran Muffins, Bananas, Banana French Toast, Blueberry Banana Bread, Blueberries, Blueberry Pancakes, etc.
  2. Point out people and things throughout the day that begin with the letter B or find signs with words that begin with the letter B.
  3. Sing rhymes and tell stories; Teddy Bear, Teddy BearGoldilocks and the Three Bears

We hope this helps you have a beary good day! lol I couldn’t resist that one. If you have any suggestions, questions or B ideas of your own then please share them with us!
