We have learned that the most effective lessons, especially in phonics, are very simple. We wrapped up our study of the letter B with an afternoon of play during which we referred to everyone by their B name. Miss Kendra, for example, became Biss Bendra. It worked brilliantly!
We also made these simple B posters. We enjoyed tracing cans to make the circles (a little green circle is glued on top of the big yellow circle so we don't have to cut out a hole, which is hard.) As you can see, broom, bus, boat, bear, bee, and bird are our vocabulary words beginning with B.
