VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR THURSDAY FEB. 18
Good Morning.  I hope everyone is staying warm in this frigid weather.
  
* Practice singing the alphabet.   You can make it a game by alternating saying the letters as well. Student says A, grown up or older sibling says B, student says C, etc.  This can be done with numbers as well.  See how high your team can count!  Level up by bouncing a ball back and forth while each person says a letter or number.

*Brainstorm all the words you can think of that begin with the "b" sound.  A big person can write the words.  Students can draw  pictures.  They can write the Bb on the paper.

*You can try blow painting.  Put a dab of paint in the middle of a piece of paper and give your child a straw and have them blow the paint all over the paper.  Talk about blowing before you begin.  Have them practice blowing so when they get close to the paint they do not suck it in!

*Bread painting- toast some bread.  Prepare your "paint" with softened butter and blue food coloring. Have them use a popsicle stick to write the letter B on the bread. I have added a link to the right on how to do toast (bread) painting.  They use milk, but I think it makes the bread soggy, but either works.  

* Cook together!  Make some brownies, banana bread, or biscuits!  You can even be more simple with slicing a banana and putting it on peanut butter toast.  Just talk about the letter and sound as you are working! 

*Don't stress your child out with a bunch of worksheets if they are not in to them.  One a day is sufficient if you print them at all.

LEPRECHAUN TRAPS

I would like to also start giving you guys a heads up about Leprechaun traps!  I would like each family to create a trap for us to set up the last day before Spring break.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, google it!  I know we haven't even used our Valentine's boxes!!  It always seems to sneak up on me!  I need these on or before March 11.  We will try to catch a Leprechaun.  I have not caught one yet, but I do have one that leaves us gifts every year!  He is very sneaky!



VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR WEDNESDAY FEB. 17
Well, having no electricity at times is another twist to this super fun winter storm!  I just don't have words anymore.  I appreciate you all so much and what you are doing to help your child with learning our letter this week.  We are going to have a week of review next week!

* Do the Bunny Hop!  I'm going to put two different links to the right! One is a new fun kid version and one that is the old Bunny Hop (incase you would like to teach your kid something you did as a kid...maybe, some of you are very young :))

* Blow up Balloons and have a race to see who can sit on and pop the most!  I have also put a link to the right on how to make the balloon orbs.  I have called it Blue Balloon Balls in the spirit of B week!  I would love to see if anyone does this or the bunny hop!! ( Insert me laughing!!)

* Continue with any activities I've listed previously.  



VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR TUESDAY FEB. 16
Dear Parents.  I know this has been a challenge.  Six school days is a very long time for little people to be virtual.  All anyone can do right now is the best you can.  I have added another download to the upper right with more printables.  I know some of you may not have access to a printer or may be out of ink, paper, etc.  Please know I will be very understanding.  

*What if you can't print?  Try using a blank piece of paper and a light marker or crayon like the color yellow or pink.  Write out on the piece of paper some upper case B's and lower case b's.  Have your child trace them with a darker color so you can see them, then underneath have them try to make them all by him/herself.  Always focus on the process (pencil/crayon grip, correct formation) not necessarily the product.  Always praise for trying!  If the letter did not turn out so good, have them try again!  I tell them it does not have to be perfect, but they have to try!  Have them try at least 3-5 on their own.

*You can also draw straight, curvy or zig-zag lines on a piece of paper and have your child practice cutting.  If you do not want to waste good paper, use whatever you have: newspaper, magazines, empty envelopes from mail.

*The letter Bb is very common.  Go for a letter search around your house!  Look everywhere!  

*Write the letter B and b on a piece of paper.  Have your child look through magazines or newspapers and cut them out and glue on the piece of paper.  Talk about the words big and little (as in actual size) and upper case and lower case.  How many big ones did you find?  How many little ones did you find.  Maybe do your own letter sort of big and little! Did you find any blue letters, black letters, or brown letters?  Count them together.  Do the same with upper case and lower case.

*Read to your child.  They love books.  Don't have a book?  Tell them a story about when they were a "b"aby!!

*Set up an indoor bowling game.  I have attached a link for instructions on how to make one.  Even if you do not want to take the time or even have paint to paint the inside, just use the plain water bottles without paint!  Use whatever you have!  They will have a blast either way!

I would like to also start giving you guys a heads up about Leprechaun traps!  I would like each family to create a trap for us to set up the last day before Spring break.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, google it!  I know we haven't even used our Valentine's boxes!!  It always seems to sneak up on me!  I need these on or before March 11.  We will try to catch a Leprechaun.  I have not caught one yet, but I do have one that leaves us gifts every year!  He is very sneaky!

VIRTUAL LEARNING FOR MONDAY FEB. 15

This week we will learn about the letter Bb.  We are reviewing numbers 0-10 and all shapes. We will learn about the colors Blue, black and brown.  I have attached links to books and songs regarding the letter B.  

I have included some printable pages in the upper right under the header of Downloads.  If you click on B distance learning packet, it will take you to pages to print for the week.  These will be unrelated to the work we would do in class. Your child is welcome to try to do as many as they wish.  Again, not sure how long we will be gone.  I will continue to post activities each day we are not in brick and mortar school. 

Consult the links to the right to find additional worksheets to print out for your child.  It is not required, but a tool if some of you have printers at home and would like to do this.  The link education.com also has an option for pre-school games. I believe everything I have posted is free, at least that was my intention!  

Here are a few more ideas for interactive learning!

     * Write numbers on paper 0-10 leaving space between.  I would write the numbers out of order to confirm if child recognizes the number or is counting.  Have them place items preferably something that begins with "B" sound, ie. Beans, buttons, etc. under the number to match quantity to number.

     * Go on a color scavenger hunt around your house!  How many items can you find that are blue, how many items are brown, and how many are black.

     *  The color volcano idea Ms. Kelcey posted on the Facebook page would be amazing to try as well!

     * I am going to put a link to the right about how to make homemade bubbles.  A friend posted on Facebook that this Saturday will be an excellent time to try this experiment because the temp will be between 9-12 degrees.  Add a drop or so of food coloring to bubbles, blow bubbles up into the air (gives them time to freeze).  Some will break on the ground like an egg and some will form crystalline patterns.  It is best to find a spot out of the wind, so you can follow the bubbles until they freeze.  If you suspend a bubble on the bubble wand, it will freeze before your very eyes!

     * If the above seems like too much for you, try dipping a pair of jeans into water and see how long it takes for them to freeze.  They will be able to stand up in about 30 minutes or less! I have added a video to the right!

     






Please feel free to email me or text me at (405)368-4188 if you have any questions.  I will not be at school.
