Letter "B" working with what we have!

Because my boy loves a good theme, we are doing letters of the week.  Not an original concept at all, but we have not done it all the way through.  We did letter "A" and I wanted to make sure I did a post to remember what kind of activities we used.

I got the pre-K A to Z curriculum from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  Several things are too simple for Sean (but will be used when Luke is ready!).  I got a couple things from each letter, though.  This counting game below uses Butterflies and numbers.  I'll mix up the cards and let him lay them out in order.  Then using Buttons he will put the correct number of pieces on each card.

He LOVES these letter books.  They were a priceless hand-me-down!  Each book is full of words starting with the letter.  The character always has a box they use to collect the things in. 

We will use this dictionary to give us ideas of things to collect around the house that start with "B."  Sean gets a kick out of making his own box.  Of course, he can gather other things not in the dictionary- I just like him getting practice using it.

After we collected items in the basket, he practiced writing the letter "B" on the board for each thing.  I finished the word.

Here is just a pre-K workbook and a name practice sheet (in a page protector).  We do this almost every time we "work."

Bubbles and lacing Beads (from the Dollar Store) for fun!

An alphabet folder game I made from stickers we had.

Another workbook.

Our Brown color art project.  I had a hard time finding brown stuff! Maybe Sean will have some ideas.

I love this BOZ workbook.  It has great Bible stories and activities.  I got it about 2 years ago at the $5 discount Christian bookstore.

We will take a day to study John the Baptist.  I will not do other activites with this one, because it has several pages to work on.

And here it all is piled up on my dining room hutch.  Guess this will be a main space to store current projects. 

I will do all of these over 2-3 days depending on Sean's interest.  I like having several things planned. 
He is sitting here with me and just said he is ready to work on his "B" stuff. 
Guess I better get going!
*I came back and added the pics of him doing the first of the projects. :-)
