Letters of Week : Bb and Cc


 ** The Letter of the Week for Preschool series  may contain affiliate links . Read full  disclosure HERE. It will also feature several links and other awesome blogs to which I will give credit for their great job .

 
To save money , local library is a good option. You can also use whatever books you may have in your home library to supplement with the lesson. 

Books to read 


Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

I Like Bugs: The Sound of B (Wonder Books Phonics Readers; Consonants)

Ben, Billy, and the Birdhouse: The Sound of B (Phonics Friends)

Bb (Alphabet Set I)

Bears on Chairs

Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You : Dr. Seuss's Book of Wonderful Noises (Bright and Early Board Books)

Where Is Baby's Belly Button? A Lift-the-Flap Book

Butterfly and the Bog Beast : A Book about Butterfly Camouflage (Magic School Bus)

 Start out by saying the letter out loud. Teaching her  the phonetic sound of the letter. Next is the tracing of both  upper case and lower case letter B.


Do a Dot Activity

Download the Letter Bb , do a dot page here for free :

We did a Bb is for Ballerina puzzle , it also teaches number sequence.

They are for personal use only. Please read her guidelines.


Cut and Paste Activity

Using a block letter B , we cut small pieces of construction paper , and she pasted the cut outs making a collage.


And another puzzle...


We read the books , I've suggested above. When you read to them , make sure you put emphasis on the words that starts with the letter B. Also , when reading it is good to run your fingers on each word ..and sentences. You can actually let them repeat the word after you.

We ended the lesson with computer time . I used ABCmouse.com and starfall to supplement with the Bb letter of the week.

and we also did a lacing activity.


Find this C is for caterpillar magnet page here : Confessions of a Homeschooler

Look for different things in your house that starts with the letter C.

  1. You have so many lovely ideas! I'll have to try these with my kiddo when he's a bit older. He's only 18 months old right now, but we're starting to work on letter recognition. I was just writing about the activities that we are starting to do to get him to identify letters, too. I love your book suggestions, as well!
