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.
Hide ‘Em in Your Heart Vol 1

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

Are the print ales available in black and white as well? I love all the bright colors, but not sure I can afford all the colored ink!
They all come in full color, but you can easily print in grayscale if you prefer to save on ink.
Hi, I was wondering if it came with the calendar time packet. Thank you
What do you mean by “it”? The letter b printables can be downloaded here, and are included in my full Letter of the Week curriculum.
Should I print the entire Letter of the Week curriculum using The Homeschool Printing Company at once? You said it was 1,500 pages. Is that how many pages I should type in my estimate on their website? Thanks for your help!
I would see what they recommend as far as pricing goes. You may want to go through the PDFs and just print what you know you’ll want to use and save a little money that way 🙂
How much time is needed daily to devote in order to do one letter per week?
Hi, if you have my Letter of the Week preschool curriculum there’s a daily schedule that comes with it so you do a variety of activities each day. I like to let preschoolers kind of set the pace though. So maybe an hour to an hour and a half if they can stay focused that long. I also like to change activities up so they’re doing something sitting, then doing something where they’re moving, then back to a sitting item. It helps teach them to focus but also let’s them get up and move around a lot. Each child is different in what they’re ready to do based on their age and attention span. I prefer to make prek fun and engaging rather than a “we have to do this for an hour” type situation. That can get frustrating quickly.
Is there a way I can just purchase the book already printed/binded?
I’m sorry, unfortunately I don’t have a way to offer them in hard copy at this time. I do recommend http://www.thehomeschoolprintingcompany.com for very reasonable color printing!
I ran across the preK Letter B document on your curriculum page as an example of your lessons. This was so helpful in explaining or showing me how you use all the activities listed in your lesson plans. Is there a place where I can go to see this kind of info for all of your letters in the LOTW curriculum? I realize they are pretty much like the Letter B examples but want to be sure I’m not missing another download.
All of my alphabet printables in the Letter of the Week curriculum come with similar activities for each letter. You can check my printables page for more details on each letter: https://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/preschool-printables
Hi. If I pay a company to print, is there enough space on each page to also have them do a 3-hole punch without tremendously interfering with most of the pages?
Some may be close, but you could probably get away with it 🙂
I don’t have a computer do you have preschool books I can purchase made I really need something to find I don’t know where to start on the learning
Hi, I’m sorry I don’t currently sell them in printed format. However you can always send the files to a print shop to have them printed.
