Learning the letters of the alphabet is one of the most foundational aspects of school. In this resource you will find a variety of activities to teach pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students about the letter B.

Teaching the Alphabet

One common approach to teaching the alphabet is to focus on one letter at a time. With this method, you spend a few days or a week learning what the letter looks like, sounds like and how to write it. In this resource, there are several activities to help early learners learn about the letter B. These activities are designed with pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students in mind. There are opportunities for group and individual work.

Bring Something From Home (Individual)

For this first activity, students will bring an object from home that starts with the letter B. This activity is great because it continues the conversation about the letter to the home, where students can share what they are learning with their parents. After students bring the object in, they all have the opportunity to tell the rest of the class the name of their object and one or two things about it. This will help everyone (including you!) learn more about the students' passions and interests. For fun, the teacher should bring something from home that starts with a B, too.

  • Materials Needed: Object that starts with the letter B

Find the Letter B (Individual and Group)

This is a two-part activity that has students learning about the letter B. For the first part (the individual portion), give students a piece of paper that has letters written randomly around the page. There should be upper and lowercase letters, including 4-6 occurrences of the letter B. Students should circle all of the Bs on the paper. If necessary, tell students how many letters they are looking for.

For the second part of the activity, put students in small groups. On another piece of paper (could be the back of the original piece), have about 10 objects printed or hand drawn with half of the objects starting with B (think - bear, bus, bug, butterfly, book, barn, etc). In their groups, students will talk about the objects on the paper and circle ones that start with B. After students have finished talk about the answers as a class.

  • Materials Needed: Papers with letter B and B objects
