We are moving on to our letter B activities for tot-school, part of our letter of the week tot-school theme for the year. I had a lot of fun coming up with the activities for this week, so many ideas to choose from.

Hands-on letter B activities for tot-school, ages 3-4.

For each week of tot-school that I plan with the letter of the week theme, I divide into 8 sections with one activity per section for the week:

  • Bible
  • Practical Life
  • Fine Motor
  • Sensory
  • Pre-Writing
  • Gross Motor
  • Reading & Math
  • Craft (typically themed with our Bible lesson)

Items Needed for Letter B Activities Week

Each week I use our Weekly Homeschool Planner pre-school pages to plan out the week and also list out the items I need for each week. Here are this week’s items:


Button Snake & Baby Doll Wrapping for Practical Life Skills

Button snake/chain and baby doll wrapping for practical life skills.

My mother in-law actually made this button and snap snake or chain for Ellie, but you could also make one like the one at Happy Hooligans. We also have a baby doll wrapped in one of Ben's muslin blankets. This one has been a big hit so far.

Bear Bead Stringing for Fine Motor Skills

Bead Transfer with Bubble Tongs

Ellie has really loved this one, she used it for only an hour the first time I set it up. If you have a child that likes to pour things, this is a great next step.

Sand Writing Tray for Pre-writing Skills

Sand tray writing center.

I used our Language toolbox from Montessori by Mom for this (the moveable alphabet cards, sand tray, and Montessori letter work book all come in that). We also added paint brushes to help focus on holding a writing utensil with the correct grasp.

Capital Letter B Pre-writing Tray

Capital letter B tray.

This is the Handwriting Without Tears program that I like using with Ellie. I have her trace the wood pieces with her two fingers as she places them on the card.

Gross Motor Skills

We are using the ABC's of Movement activity cards and so I pulled out letter B for this week.

Button Sorting
