Tell the children they are going to have fun learning about a very special community helper, the baker.

Print your choice of alphabet materials in the materials column.  Ask the children if they have met a baker.  What does a baker do?  Discuss the main responsibilities of a baker.  Bakers mix ingredients according to recipes to make breads, pastries, and other baked goods.  Discuss the image, what is the baker doing and what are the objects in the image.  What is he wearing?  He wears a uniform and a special hat.  What color is the uniform? Who else do they know bakes -- Mom, Dad, Grandma, Auntie, etc.

Alphabet Activity > Letter B is for Baker

Present  and display your option of Letter B alphabet printable materials listed in the materials column.  Present and display the poster and distribute the coloring page or handwriting practice worksheet.   

* Finger and Pencil Tracing
Trace letter B's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter.  Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page.
Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter with your choice of sharpened crayon, fine tip marker, coloring or regular pencil and demonstrate the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly.  During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

* Find the letter B's:  Have the children find all the letter B's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle or trace/shade them first.

Coloring Activity:  Encourage the children to color the image in the coloring page and worksheets.

Letter B words:
Letter B Worksheet and Mini Book

This worksheet and matching mini-book can be used as part of Letter B program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related b words.  Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.

Discuss other letter B words and images:  First 'brainstorm' and ask the children about other words that have that beginning sound and write them on a board (dry erase board) as the children come up with examples.  You can print letter b in a different bright color to make it stand out.  If you have illustrated alphabet books you can also use images in them. You can also display other B posters and coloring pages or even make a letter B classroom book using coloring images or color posters.  Visit Letter B Printable Materials to make your choice.
