ABC/123: Letter B

Here's a quick rundown of our Letter B books and activities:

-Traveled down the Alphabet Path with Mrs. Appleby, met the Bugle Flower Fairy and listened to his song.

-Used our Handwriting Without Tears capital letter pieces and letter B Card to practice letter formation.

-Glued beans to the letter B template.

-Read
My Blue Boat
, built boats from aluminum foil, and floated them in the bathtub.

-Read Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey and ate blueberries from tin buckets. (Of course we had to drop them into the buckets and listen for the "kerplink".)



-Read Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See by Bill Martin Jr., and retold it using our felt story set.



-Our puppet friend, Buddy Bear, read a few more letter B stories to us, including:







Some more letter B ideas for the future...
B is for:

bugs

bumblebees

bubbles

baking

books

bells

butterflies

birds

barns

banana boats - We didn't have time to make these last week, but we make them occasionally just because we enjoy them so much. Slit a banana lengthwise through the peel, making sure not to cut all the way through to the other side. Stuff the bananas with mini-marshmallows and chocolate chips. Wrap each banana in aluminum foil and cook over a fire, on the grill, or in a 300 degree oven for 5 minutes, or until chocolate is melted. Eat with a spoon. These are yummy, and my kids love 'em!

Blessings,
