Literacy Activities
Find Bingo Bs

  • Place letter cards around the classroom.
  • 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, and place the distractor letters in a discard pile.

Get 4 Bs in a row

  • Give each child a Bingo board.
  • Use letter B 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 on their Bingo board.
  • 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, “B Bingo!”

More Practice
Make a B with buttons

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