In My "b" Sound Box, "Little b" looks for items that begin with the letter B to collect in her sound box. The book has repetitive text, word/picture correspondence, and improves vocabulary. I have bought the Kindle version of the book to project on the SMARTBoard. The kids love coming up and looking for objects that begin with the letter B or helping me turn the pages.

AlphaTales (Letter B: Bubble Bear)

Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?

This book is a favorite among my students. We read this book at the beginning of the year. We acted out the book by printing large character cards. I divided the class in half. One half was the actors and the second half were the audience. Then the class switched roles. We also wrote a class book based on the repetitive phrases in the book entitled, Ms. Hampton, Ms. Hampton Who Do You See? Even though we are half way through the school year, this book is still popular in our classroom library.
