here's how we're celebrating Valentine's Day in the classroom...
Practical Life shelf (left to right, top to bottom) tonging heart erasers, sorting colored hearts, transferring glass hearts, eye-dropper work, spooning sequins, pouring-pitcher to cup (with pink sand!), cutting veggies
sewing heart valentines!
cutting out hearts- the child traces the line with scissors and opens it up for surprise!
heart pattern matching (I made this in power point- just copy and paste the hearts and add different colors/borders/textures- make 2 copies- cut one set out and laminate)
(heart bracelet: paper heart punch outs, red pipe cleaners, puncher and pad. Pick out 6 hearts, punch hole in center and lace onto pipe cleaner)
heart dot painting: cut out heart on card stock, laminate and re-cut out heart- makes an instant, customized stencil!
draw-your-own penguin (not Valentine's Day related- but oh so cute!)
