We had a fun week with the letter V! Here is a snapshot….
On Tuesday our theme was Valentines Day. In morning centers the kids counted heart erasers on to 10 frames, wrote about 3 things that they love, and played a beginning sounds game. In afternoon centers the kids made numbers with snap cubes, colored things that start with the letter V, and worked on a heart pin poke. They also finished their last name books from last week. We ended the day by cutting and gluing the letter V as a vase with heart flowers in it. These turned out really great and were sent home.
On Wednesday we had so much fun at our party in the morning! Thank you to everyone that came and helped and also to those of you that donated. In the afternoon the kids did some fun centers. They flipped a card and marked the number with erasers, they worked on valentine themed click block mats, and they matched upper and lowercase letter puzzles that made a heart. They also made cute heart/straw necklaces! We ended the day by handing out all of our valentines and stacking big red cups to make a heart on the table. I posted lots of pictures on GroupMe in case you missed it.
On Thursday our theme was Vegetables. In morning centers the kids worked on a veggie look and find, cut and glued veggies on to the letter V, and completed veggie patterns. They also painted with veggies! In the afternoon we did an animal look and find. I put different pictures of animals up on the walls and one at a time the kids picked up a card that said, ‘I see a…’ and it said an animal. They then had to find the animal on the wall and stand by it. Once they found all the animals, I gave them clip boards with a paper that had all of the animals on it. They had to go find the animals again and color them. These are always good activities to get the kids moving in the afternoon. We ended the day with art. The kids cut out a vase and drew and glued flowers coming out of the vase. These turned out really great!
Next week we talk about the letter H. Looking forward to it!
