Alphabet Activities:

Display the poster and your choice of printable activities. Discuss the poster, and ask what does it look like? Yes, it does look like a tree, but it isn't. That is what is so cute about broccoli stalks. What color is it? It sure is a bright joyful green.

Children Age 3 and under:

Print a letter B coloring page in standard block or D'Nealian font and a broccoli 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 broccoli on the margins.

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.
