Literacy Activities
Big blue banner 

  • Write the letter B on a whiteboard, name the letter, and have the children write the 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 on pictures of objects that begin with B, or have them write on sticky notes to label real objects. 
  • Work together with the children to attach the objects or pictures to the big blue banner.

More Practice
Write the target letters

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

Find the letter B 

  • Cut out the letter cards 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, have him or her look at the letter B on the whiteboard and compare it to the letter he or she picked.
