Hello!  Today we started our valentine unit with a focus on hearts.  We read:
Day It Rained HeartsHedgehug: A Sharp Lesson In Love
In the math center, the kids played a game called "How many sweethearts in the jar?" created by 2 Teaching Mommies.  If you are looking for something fun and educational to occupy your kids at home, this is the place to find it!  Check out their site for lots of free printables to reinforce pre-k skills.  They even have Tot Packs for the little ones!
I didn't take a lot of pictures today, because some of the kids were busy making valentines (for you!), while others decorated their mailboxes.  They will flip-flop on Wednesday, and the ones who haven't decorated their boxes will do so, and the others will make their valentines.
Our other activities today were:
  • housekeeping
  • big foam blocks/wooden puzzles/dollhouse
  • writing/drawing in flour trays
  • playdough hearts
  • color by number (also at the math center)
  • decorating our mailboxes or making valentines
  • tracing our names with pencil
  • heart exercises (jumping, kicking, running, etc)
  • letter Ss - slither like a snake
The children are already on the countdown for our Valentine's Day party!  They know it's only 4 more sleeps until they get to pass out their valentines and candy.  We're excited too!
