Piles of red and pink paper scraps and a layer of glitter over the entire classroom…must be Valentine’s Day! Children were busy with a variety of Valentine-themed activities.
They practiced fine motor skills as they cut out paper hearts for a heart garland, which we hung up for decoration.
Conversation hearts offered the opportunity to practice math skills such as sorting, counting, and graphing.
We not only had a Valentine exchange within our class, allowing each child to make a homemade card for a secret Valentine, but children also put great care into creating dozens of Valentines for our friends at the Senior L.I.F.E. Center.
And of course, we had to get messy!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s to putting our hearts into joyful play!
