Practice the skill within an activity 
Big blue banner 

  • Write the uppercase letter B and the lowercase letter b on a whiteboard, name the letters, and have the children write the B and b in the air with their fingers. 
  • Show the children the big blue sheet of butcher paper, then explain to the children that this will be their B banner and that banner starts with the letter B
  • Have the children write the letter b on pictures of objects that begin with b (see below), or have them write b on sticky notes to label real objects. 
  • Work together with the children to attach the objects or pictures to the big blue banner.

Apply the skill 
Write the target letters

  • Write a large uppercase letter B and lowercase b on the banner. 
  • Help the children use black, blue, and brown markers to write the letters B and b on the banner, using the letters you wrote as models. 
  • As the children write, point out the shapes included in the letter B and b (i.e., lines and half-circles). 

Find the letter B 

  • Cut out the letter cards (see below) and mix them up. 
  • Let the children each choose a letter card. 
  • Help the children decide whether or not the letter is a B, providing support as needed. 
    • If a child mistakenly identifies a distractor letter as the letter B, refer to the letter written on the board and compare the two letters. 
  • Let the children tape or glue a B letter card to the banner.
