INTRODUCING LETTER B
Yay! It’s such an exciting moment in time when your child starts learning letter recognition! Letter B is the second letter of the alphabet and is a consonant!

I’m so thankful that I get to join you and your little one as you are learning all about the letter B! If you are wanting to learn more about How to teach the alphabet, you’re in the right place! Tracing letters is such a fun way to introduce the letters of the alphabet! Letter B is for Bear, Bunny, Books and Build!
If you have a preschooler still learning the shapes of the letters, an easy way to practice letters is through flash cards and coloring pages. Practice the letter B sound as you hit the bass drum like the bear in these super fun and engaging flashcards from ABC SEE HEAR DO flash cards. These are my favorite because they give an action for the child to do as they say the letter sounds engaging other parts of their brain to better remember the alphabet.
Tracing letters is a great way to introduce the letters of the alphabet! Don’t forget to read books about the letter b, do some hands-on activities and crafts for your little learners, and make sure you are practicing the letter sound for the letter B. /B/ says “b’ as in bed.

As a best practice, I recommend printing in color. I know it can get expensive always printing in color if you are using a laser printer. That is why I switched over to an Epson Ecotank! It was a bit of an investment up front, but it has been worth it! I have printed over 12,000 pages (90% of that in color…mostly homeschool curriculum if you are wondering why I’m printing so much) over the past two years and I have only refilled the ink 2x! For the price of the refillable ink and how long it lasts, it is most definitely the most affordable option if you are looking to print a lot of colorful pages in the near future.
LETTER TRACING FAQ’S
WHAT DOES TRACING LETTERS DO FOR CHILDREN?
Tracing helps children refine their fine motor skills and pre-writing skills. Tracing lays the foundation for proper letter formation, word building and even drawing.
HOW DO YOU MAKE LETTER TRACING FUN?
Use creativity with this one! Start by only tracing for small amounts of time and making sure your little one doesn’t tire easily. It’s better to try again another day than to push your child beyond their limit.
1) Use colorful dry erase marker on laminated paper
2) Have the child use small objects (like cheerios) to place on top of the letter instead of physically writing it
HOW DO YOU TEACH A PRESCHOOLER TO TRACE?
Again, start with small amounts of tracing at a time. Our Free printable My First Letter B Tracing worksheet is perfect for this.
DOES TRACING IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS?
Yes. Tracing a letter or image can help your child focus on the physical demands of writing or drawing without the worry of getting it right. It builds fine motor skills and muscle memory.
WHY IS TRACING THE ALPHABET IMPORTANT?
Tracing is a fine motor activity that strengthens handwriting by helping children recognize the varying shapes and sizes of each letter.
WHAT AGE SHOULD I BEING TRACING ACTIVITIES WITH MY CHILD?
Tracing activities should not be forced – meaning being made to continue after they’ve shown signs of being done. That being said, you can start as early as your child shows the desire to learn.
