'B' is for Butterflies, Bears and a Boatload of things!

To keep my head from spinning too much with ideas, I'm keeping learning about each letter to the words mentioned in the wheels that are sent home from school with Morgan (plus something from the Bible when it works out)....

These are the kids' Butterfly wheels. The wheels have words/pictures of a Bear, Butterfly, Book and Boat

Their Bear puppets.

I used a Bear mold to make these Bear Buddies.
Blake Biting into his Bear.
Morgan too!
We read about Butterflies...
(I couldn't get this picture to upload properly.)
...and Bears...

...and in the Bible we read about a Big Boat.
(This pic also wouldn't upload right.)
I think you can see we tried reading a lot of Books, since Book was one of our words too. :-)

Besides all that we also sang "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and "Arky Arky"...which is about that Big Boat in the Bible ;-)

Morgan also spent quite a bit of time trying to come up with words that start with 'B'. It was neat to see her so interested, but she seemed to get the 'b' sound confused with the 'p' sound...something to work on I guess! :-)

Those wheel crafts are fun to make. I should do a word family one sometime with my kids.

Great job on "B", looks like they had fun and rice krispie treats are always welcomed.

Awesome! You should totally homeschool. You're already doing it anyway, and doing an amazing job at that! Morgan and Blake are probably way beyond kids their age academically.
Arky Arky was one of my favorite songs as a kid. I'm going to be singing it all night now. LOL!
