'Bb' Week!

What a mostly enjoyable week!
Continuing in our alphabet theme weeks, last week we had 'B' week. We went over what sound B makes and discussed big B and little b. We discussed what words begin with B and watched movies that started with B's.
One of our first 'B' activities was out 'B' scavenger hunt. I took all of our magnetic letters and put them on the garage. I then took chalk and wrote letters, numbers and shapes on the driveway. The boys then had to find and circle all of the B's they could find.

 Once they had finished finding them on the garage R and A decided they were done so Gage and X finished up.
 Gage won finding 6 of the B's and X came in close second. All in all the boys loved doing it and had so much fun. I can't wait to do our 'C' scavenger hunt.
 As always we had our 'B' worksheets.
 We colored 'B' monsters for the "Our Week" board.

We traced big B's and little b's and then I tried to get them to write them free hand. Gage loves to trace and then write them freehand after. The other boys made a couple attempts but preferred to trace them for a while first. Once they were ready to try them freehand though, they were excited that they could do it and there were high fives all around!

As a break from worksheets I made the kids Goop to play in. Gage and A were not to fond of the feeling, which is something I knew about Gage already. X and R had a great time exploring the feel of it.

 As you can see they were all amazed by me scooping it up and letting it drip from my hands.
 Another activity we did for 'B' week, I took as many things that began with B that I could find in our learning toys and covered them in shaving cream. The objective was for the boys to hunt down as many toys as possible and then after I dipped them in water and cleaned them they had to tell me what the toy was and what letter it started with.

 A once again was not fond of getting his hands dirty so he opted to sit it out. Gage who also hates when things feel weird under his hands wanted to continue playing in it and then getting it all over himself. I'm not sure why.

 For fun I had each boy color themselves a superhero mask which I laminated, cut out and taped to a straw so they could play superheroes.
 They all then told me that superheroes are mad and say "GRRRRR!"
X even showed me his "GRRRR!" face!
I hope you enjoyed the run down of our 'B' week! I think I am going to post at the end of each week with our letter activities from the week.
