Letter B – Bumble Bee



Read the B page in Dr. Seuss’s ABC book. Emphasize the /b/ sound by saying b-b-bumblebee. Ask what other things start with /b/ sound?

Read Bumble Bee. Invite students to listen for the /b/ sound and to also look for big B and little b in the book. When finished, asked the kids what words they heard or saw that start with B. 

Arts-Infused Activities

Reading/Sensory – Ss make a big B and/or little a by drawing the letter in the air. Then students collaborate to make a B with their bodies. Next they make a B with bears (gummy bears or teddy grahams). They can follow a printed letter pattern if needed, or can do it on their own. They put the bears on top of the letter to become familiar with the shape of the letter.

Reading/Art – Make a letter B and bumblebee combined!
