B is for Ball

B is for BallSweet Pea learned all about the letter B in preschool, so I extended his learning at home!

Books we read: Belly Button Book by Sandra Boynton, 1001 Bugs to Spot by Emma Helbrough, Explore Bugs by Maurice Pledger.

Games we played: Richard Scarry’s Busytown. (Lots of I spy work and fine motor, too!)

I also found some paper 3D letters on Mr. Printables. They are a bit tricky to assemble (read: not for kids to make), but 4 year old Sweet Pea loved touching it and making it dance. I think it being 3D so he could handle it and physically touch it all over helped him really ‘feel’ that it was the letter B.

To extend this a little further I had him think of things that started with B and we found some of those items around the house. Since we had a ton of buttons, and buttons starts with the letter B, he decided to cover his letter with buttons. This was great fine motor work for him!

Of course, the weather was still nice so we spent time outside…playing with a big, big ball!
