Since we are moving through the alphabet from the beginning, next up was the letter B. I found this bear tracing printable several years ago and printed several of them at the time. I think we used it last year and maybe even the year before, but she still likes it, so here we go again. This time she also had to color it too.

The Raising Rock Starts Kindergarten curriculum follows the alphabet too, so we continued with the letter B and it's memory verse - "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." Matthew 5:9

Meredith joined us for our memory verse craft. First, I let the girls use dot markers to color their paper plates.
We finished up our You Can Read unit with words, "run", "play", "find" and "to".
She has expressed worries about not being able to read. Not worries that she can't read now, but worries like she won't be able to learn how to read. We keep reassuring her that she is going to be just fine and will learn to read just fine. Worksheets like the one above are great for building her confidence.
We had issues for a couple of weeks with our computer that our printer is hooked to, so I couldn't print any printables for the girls in December. However, with all of our past years printables that we didn't complete, we had no shortage of Christmas worksheets for her to choose from. We did several more activities that are not pictured - she really likes themed activities!
Coloring christmas presents to match the ribbons from Gift of Curiosity. She asked me after EVERY single present, "how about this, momma? Isn't this pretty?" EVERY SINGLE ONE. ;)
She also had fun with the laminated activities I made two years ago...building a gingerbread man...
To go along with the letter B, we had a yarn BALL toss with our leftover party decorations.

This week, while we catch up on Meredith's letter B activities (I want them to stay on the same letter), we are doing a theme focus on the United States. She still loves learning about the states, so we are working our different puzzles, reading books, looking at flashcards and finding computer games. Hopefully, I'll blog about it sometime soon.
