Hi everyone! Welcome to the Letter B! Naturally after finishing with caterpillars last week, butterflies just seemed the right way to go. I did go a little overboard with this, so brace yourself!

Letter B Memory Verse:
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. Acts 16:31
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23

Read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and put up the letter B on our Alphabet Tree! You can download my small alphabet letters here.

Song time:
Hide ‘Em in Your Heart Vol 1
Hide ‘Em In Your Heart Songs – Vol 2

Letter B Tracing Cards: Laminate then use with use with Expo Dry Erase Markers for pre-writing practice skills.

Butterfly Clip cards: you can use these fun colored paper clips, or mini-clothespins, or beans, or whatever. Goal is to place the correct amount of clips onto the card.

Letter Bb Do-A-Dot page: We use Do-a-Dot Art Markers with this!


Butterfly Counting: just place the correct number on the card based on how many butterflies are on it.

Butterfly Lacing Card. Just print, laminate then hold punch every inch or so, add string or yarn to lace. I’ve also seen people tie a twisted pipe cleaner into a needle shape then the string is tied on that so its easier for lacing.

(Note: To get all of the games in my Letter of the Week curriculum, please check out the curriculum in my store!)

Butterfly Pattern Activity! Hopefully I did better this time around on the pattern!

Large butterfly puzzle. Print, laminate and cut along the lines!

Butterfly Size Sort, just sort the pieces onto the game board based on size. You can also have them line the pieces up small to large.

Capital B and lowercase b sorting game, print, laminate, cut out the little butterflies and then sort away!

Butterfly Color Matching Game. So in my late night game creating fog, I made this game twice LOL! Oh well, I just mixed them all together in one bag and will let her sort them out! Haha!

Large Floor Butterfly numbers: since the caterpillar floor game went so well, I made some for the butterflies. Goal is to call out numbers and have your child hop to the correct one. And we could use some number recognition help around here!

Butterfly dice game: goal is to roll the die and move your piece to the next spot containing your rolled number. First one to the flower wins!

How many butterflies? Goal is to pick a number and place it on the game board. Your child will put that amount of butterflies on the board.

Butterfly letter matching game. This is a fun letter matching activity, that practices both upper and lowercase letters recognition! If you’re looking for more challenge, use the uppercase card with the lowercase letter disks or visa versa! (The download includes upper and lowercase letter disks and activity cards) Click here to see the process of making the letters.

(Please note, the original idea for this game came from Tot School and Carisa’s blog.)
Butterfly numbers writing practice: I laminated these then cut them out along the lines, hole punched the corner and used an o-ring to bind them together like a little booklet. Use dry-erase markers to practice writing numbers.

Butterfly pre-writing practice: I laminated these then cut them out along the lines, hole punched the corner and used an o-ring to bind them together like a little booklet. Use dry-erase markers to practice writing numbers. I un-binded them so you can see what each card looks like. ( You can also print these on regular copy paper and use for cutting practice!)

Butterfly Alphabet writing practice: I laminated these then cut them out along the lines, hole punched the corner and used an o-ring to bind them together like a little booklet. Use dry-erase markers to practice writing numbers.

Butterfly coloring page, and Bb writing practice. You can also use your Dot-A-Dot markers for this one!

Letter Collage Worksheets: The download includes letters A-Z as well as a collage idea sheet. We use the collage items as objects to decorate our letters for an alphabet book. We also color, paint, and stamp them. Since we use both upper and lowercase, I have provided both for you!

Bb lacing cards, I just hole punched these every inch or so, then use yarn or string laces to lace the cards! Click here to download the A-Z lacing cards.

Butterfly magnet page: I use this with a cookie sheet and these pom-pom magnets I made from pom-poms and self-sticky magnets from the craft isle in Wal-mart. I also use these magnets from Amazon: Power Magnets, 0.75 inch Diameter, Assorted Color

Letter B Scavenger Hunt: Fill your box with things that start with the letter B.

Butterfly Crafts: I haven’t decided which we’ll do, but these look fun, I’ll edit this post with our results:
Deep Space Sparkle Butterflies
Kaboose Coffe Filter Butterflies

Okay, we did a Tissue Paper Butterfly Craft, click here for instructions!

Letter B Reading: The Big Green Pocketbook. We used the purse downloads from Homeschool Share

  1. I love your ideas! Thanks for sharing! I am trying to download your butterfly/B sorting page, but it’s not giving me a link to click where it says click here to download. I would love to use it in my classroom! Thanks!

  2. I’m hoping you read/respond to this. I have purchased a full curriculum already from Encompass. Many of the worksheets/activities they are using come from your site. I was able to obtain everything I needed for our first week, the letter A, no problem. Now that I am in week 2 , the letter B, I have noticed that I cn get 3 of the activities and then it appears I have to buy your entire cirriculum to get the rest. THIS is very disheartening! I have no interest in 2 full curriculums, it would be a waste of time and paper. I’m concerened that I bought this curriculum from Encompass and it has set me up to purchase yours as well. PLEASE let me know how I can get these activities without purchasing your entire curriculum…..

    1. Hi Mysti,
      I just emailed you, hopefully we can get it worked out. I haven’t authorized Encompass to utilize my curriculum, but I’m happy to help you in any way that I can. Thanks!

  3. Hello,

    If you purchase the Pre-K curriculum book are all these activities in there on this example page of letter B or do you have to come back and download all these separately?

    1. If you purchase the Letter of the Week you get all of the printable activities show in this post. There are also some extras not shown as well. You do NOT have to downlaod them individually, they come all together in a zip file.

  4. I have a question. I would love all of this and would like to purchase the entire curriculum for the alphabet. My question is how it all works. As a homeschooler, do I purchase the letter of the week or letter of the week classroom? And once I purchase, do I print and laminate myself or do the activities come with?
    Once I saw all of the activities for B, I just knew I needed it all. It’s FABULOUS. I’m a first time homeschooler and I extremely excited and yet, extremely overwhelmed. I found your book on Amazon and am purchasing that. Sorry for all the questions. Thank you for your help.
