I used a variety of crafts, activities and learning centers to help the kids learn the letter “B”. Below are some of what I included in their workboxes for the week:-butterfly journal…just pages shaped like a butterfly stapled together. I gave the kids a lot of leeway on what to fill them with. Some chose to write stories about butterflies. Some chose to draw the life cycle of a butterfly. Others drew pictures and labeled them.

-the coveted Sensory Bin card! This week it was a Bugs Sensory Bin.
We did quite a few craft activities including making binoculars and bird feeders using toilet paper rolls and making bean mosaics. You can find instructions on how to make the bird feeder and the bean mosaic here.
Here are some of the workbox activities we used for Telling Time:
-Time and Money (canadian version) Flash Cards
-I don’t know where I picked up this clock with the moveable hands that the kids can “set” and then write the time below with a dry erase marker, but they love it!
Lots of other workbox activities unrelated to Telling Time or the letter “Bb”, including:
-A Reason for Handwriting
