Letter of the Week ~ B ~Blue Balloon Bounce
what you need: balloons (preferably blue… but use what you have) ~ sharpie
I wrote Bs on all of the balloons with a sharpie. On some I wrote uppercase Bs and on some I wrote lowercase bs. Then we took the party out front. I gave the kids only two instructions.
1. Bounce the blue balloons.
2. Say as many B words as you can while you bounce.
The balloons went all over the yard, and the kids had a blast chasing them down.
I thought the best part was the B sound face. There was a lot of Buh…
Buh… going on.
Tips (to maximize learning): 1. I blew up a bunch of balloons before we started, that way when one popped I had a quick replacement. 2. When the b words started to slow down I would suggest a category. “What foods start with a b?” “Can you think of any animals that start with a buh buh B?” 3. If your little one is just learning their letters, you say the words while they bounce.
