Letter B - Part 2

This is continuation of yesterday's post of Letter B Activites.

More Bb Activities:

Draw a "B" Word:- Have your child draw an object that starts with the letter "b".
- Either write the name of the object and have them copy it or spell the word
- Be very careful when criticizing a child's artwork. Even though it isn't how you would draw the object, encouragement helps build confidence.

Cut strips of paper 1" wide. Fold the paper accordian style.
- Little man had great fun "boing" this up and down while saying "boing."

Button Sorting:
Give the child a pile of buttons. Have the child place only "B-Colored" buttons (brown, blue, and black buttons) on the Bb Poster.
