I decided to go ahead and post Week 2 (Letter B-- May 19th-May23rd) today.. I'm making a grocery list and I needed to put a few things on there, so I thought I would give you all a heads up too if you're following along with this :)

This week (Monday, May 19th-Friday, May 23rd) is all about the LETTER 'B.'

MONDAY- BALLOON GAME! Blow up a balloon, talk about how the word 'balloon' starts with the letter 'B,' and then have fun trying to keep the balloon off of the ground. Every time you hit the balloon, count higher and higher! See how high you can count together :) 

TUESDAY- B is for BIBLE. We are going to read the story of BABY Jesus being BORN HERE. This story doesn't go too in depth, but with Tayler and Quinn's 3 minute attention span, I think what they have written is perfect!

“She gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7 (New International Reader’s Version)
Have the children do the following hand motions along with repeating the words after you, to help them learn the Bible Verse:
She gave birth to her first born, a son: act like you are rocking a baby
She wrapped him in clothes: wrap a pretend baby in a blanket
And placed him in a manger: pretend to gently lay the baby down
Because there was no room: shake head side to side as though saying, “no”
For them in the inn: make the shape of a house with your arms
Luke 2: hold up 2 fingers
7: hold up 7 fingers
Do this a few times with the children. Make it fun for them to do the motions and say the words. Involving them in active learning is essential for memorization at this age.

WEDNESDAY-  BUBBLES!!! We are going to discuss the fact that Bubbles starts with the letter 'B' and then we are going to go outside and have a ton of fun blowing bubbles! These are one of Tayler and Quinn's favorite things to do outside anyways! They love chasing them and trying to catch them.

THURSDAY-  We are going to make a Bunny Butt for lunch today! We are going to talk about how Bunny starts with the letter 'B' and then we are going to dig in and enjoy it! Both girls love peanut butter and jelly and Tayler adores raisins! I am so excited! HERE is where I got the idea! I can't wait for the girls to see it!

FRIDAY- Today we are going to trace the letter 'B' (I want tracing to be something we do at least once a week) and then we are going to BUILD with BLOCKS! We have hundreds so we should be able to build something awesome! Perfect way to end our week with the letter 'B.'
