Activities > Letter B is for Baker:

Display the poster and your choice of printable activities. 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 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.

Children Age 3 and under:

Print a letter B coloring page in standard block or D'Nealian font and a baker coloring page behind it or on a separate page if using finger paints to decorate later. Discuss other letter B words found on the worksheet.

Finger 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.

Children can trace and color the letter B's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the coloring page and write letter B b and the word baker on the margins.

Handwriting worksheet tips:

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain 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.

Have the children find all the letter B's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.

Children ages 3+:

Letter B words: Letter B Worksheet Program and Mini-Book can be used as part of program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related words. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.
