Letter of the Week B- Day 4

B is for Bee
We started with this 'loud' book, The Baby BeeBee Bird. We had a lot of fun reading this and being really, really loud!

I had Jake practice drawing lines. He had to connect the bees to the flowers. He is really getting good at drawing straight lines. He did this practice three or four times using the dry erase crayons.
Next, Jake practiced tracing the upper and lowercase Bs. He enjoys tracing the letters but does not let me tell him where to start or how to trace the letter. Instead of fighting with him about it, I have decided to let him explore the letters and trace them on his own. As I have stated before, we are not working on handwriting but rather letter recognition. I feel, by exploring the letters he is still building skills.
