B is for Boats, Buoyancy & ibn Battuta

We are doing mini unit studies going through the alphabet for our ABC of the Quran adventure. Letter B is represented by BoatBallButtonButterflyBallerinaBridgeBrain & the Quran B is for Bird which tells the story of how God showed Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) His Power by using birds.

Each letter will follow a basic format for Lil A's learning that will include the five senses. The visual and touching exercises will include:
ABC of Quran Letter Cards
Drawing Letters in the Sand
Build Playdough Letters
Build Letters using our free printable
Use COAH Letter Collage Sheets
Bingo Dot Markers Letter formation
Build Letter words using our free printable
Wet Erase Marker Practice from 1+1=1

Our hearing activities will include books, books, and more books. We will also use an internet base Sound recording to hear the sounds each word makes. Various Taste & Smell activities will also be included and possibly a Field study that begins with the letter.

Most of the pictures from our boat activity were lost. However, some of the key things we learned can be found on other blogs and websites.
