Preschool | Valentine's Day Theme

Saturday, February 13, 2016

Summer is 42.5 months old.

Our Valentine's Day themed week was pretty low-key and simple, using many resources already prepped from previous years and a few new ones.

Here's a look at our tray set-up.

Top Left: Gluing Glitter Hearts | Top Middle: Color by Number | Top Right: Letter Hearts
Bottom Left: Lacing | Bottom Middle: Number Identification | Bottom Right: Scissor Practice

We used this pack for several activities, including pre-writing practice which turned out to be a favorite this week.


Kaitlyn usually naps when we do school, but this particular day we got an earlier start than normal and she was able to join in.  She was fascinated with everything Summer was doing and would not leave her side.


We worked on counting and number identification, using pom poms to locate the number.


And, put together several puzzles.


We worked on letter identification, using both uppercase and lowercase letters.


She loved shadow matching...



And, a sensory bin--originally I had planned to use pink, red and white pom poms, a few strands of ribbon, and foam hearts.  However, it just wasn't coming along as I had hoped and I decided to scrap the whole idea. A few days later, I found some inspiration and added curly pipecleaners which was perfect!  Then, I added a few colorful wooden numbers so Summer could "hunt" and identify numbers and she loved it!
