The Letter Bb

Today was lots of fun for the kids. My oldest is a great help and I don't know what I would do without her presence. She is responsible enough to finish her own work and then assist with the others, AlhamduLILLAH.

She's currently finishing the third installment of her second grade reading series and I think that we will both be glad when she's done, InshaALLAH. Then, I hope to take a stronger literature approach.

Last In The Second Grade Series

We are also pushing along with multiplication and we've added copywork so that it will sink in.

Copywork

She started division as well and she's grasping the concepts well, AlhamduLILLAH.

Division


Then, we made a lapbook/folder for the letter "B".

We use Alphabooks so that my son can learn whole words as he recognizes the letters and their sounds.

For the inside, we used a story called A Little Bird and we made a hand puppet to go along with the poem.

B is for Bird

Coloring the pages

We also made paper boats after listening to and reading Curious George Rides a Bike and of course they had to try them out immediately.

The instructions are in the book and once my daughter got the hang of it, she was off and running.

We made 19 boats throughout the day!

Assalamualaykum,
I really like the alphabet folders,maashAllah. My daughter would not have the patience for the whole alphabet, but maybe I could use this for some letters, such as n and m, as she confuses these.

Wa 'alaikum as salaam Sis,

So far he seems to like it. I'm skipping around and trying different letters rather than go in order.

I don't spend a long time on it which is probably why he doesn't mind doing it, lol. He has little patience at this young age so I have to move on if he starts complaining.

Take care,
wa salaam,
Nakia
