The bee is an insect with a hairy body, four wings, and sometimes a stinger. The honey bee makes honey, and the only insect to produce a food. Many bees drink nectar from flowers. Bees are impotant pollinators.

Alphabet Activity > Letter B is for Bee or Bumblebee
Present and display the poster and distribute the coloring page or handwriting practice worksheet. This bee image has a matching printable craft.

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, 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 

Letter B words: Letter B Worksheet and Mini-Book: These materials can be used to reinforce letter practice and to identify related words. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.

Discuss other letter B words and images found in the worksheet. You can also display posters and coloring pages or even make a letter B classroom book. Visit letter B printable activities to make your choice.
