We have been spending a lot of time on the letter "B". We play a game where we sort plastic toys (a cat, a boat, a beaver, a snake, a banana, etc.) into our "starts with b" bin and our "no b" bin. Plus, every time we learn a new word we say it out loud and check to see if it contains that beautiful "buh buh buh" sound.
Quote of the Week
On the playground, one Kindergartener was screaming because she saw "a bee! a bee!" Then, suddenly, her look of terror turned to pride and joy. "Teacher!" she added, still screaming, "'Bee starts with 'b'!"
Inspired by her discovery, we made big bumble bees today. They look beautiful! They also look a little like fish. Maybe we can use the same craft when we get to "F".
