Practice the skill within an activity

Find Bingo Bs

  • Invite the children to search for the letter B and say, “/b/, /b/, /b/” when it is found.
  • Tell the children to ‘bring back’ each letter B to help them play Bingo.

Get 4 Bs in a row

  • Give each child a Bingo card (see below).
  • Use letter cards as the token markers (or have the children make their own token markers by writing the letter B on small scraps of paper).
  • Hold up a Bingo picture card and have the children place a token on the matching picture.
  • When a child places a letter B on a picture have them say, “B says /b/.”
  • Once children get four in a row, have them say, “Bingo says /b/!”

Apply the skill (choose from the following)

Make a B with buttons

  • Write a large letter B with a glue stick.
  • Allow the children to stick buttons or beans on the glue while producing the /b/ sound.

Write the target letter
