Be Mine

I know I already did this (sort of) in the last post, but I didn't have the traditional picture in front of the calendar, soooooo

Introducing Cameron!!
Cameron joined our afternoon class last week and he is a great helper in our class! We are excited to have him!

Feb. 10, 2009

Today we started by coloring some cute valentine pictures to decorate our valentine bags with.

Next, of course, was calendar time, which just to refresh your memories or to tell some of the newbies, consists of a Learning Box Question (LBQ), The Pledge of Allegiance, Weather, and Calendar.

After calendar time, we did our heart freeze dance. This is still my favorite part of preschool. I love watching the kids dance around our shapes! They are so cute! We danced, jumped, marched, walked on our tip toes, and walked backward. We danced in the heart, on the heart, and outside of the heart.

Next we read The Night Before Valentines Day by Natasha Wing again. We reviewed the title, front cover, back cover, pictures and words in the book.

We colored and decorated our Valentine "mailboxes" (mailbags). The kids concentrated and did great at lacing the yarn through the top!

After snack, we counted and made a card with the number 7, the word seven, and 7 hearts.

We reviewed Vv and looked at some picture cards, Valentine, Vest, Vase.

We introduced Kk.

The Letter Kk
to the tune of Frere Jacques
The letter K. The letter K.
(make ASL sign for letter, showing one hand then the other)
Has a sound. Has a sound.
(bring 1 hand to ear and then the other hand to the other ear)
What sound do you make? What sound do you make?
(palms facing up, shrug shoulders)
/k/ /k/ /k/! /k/ /k/ /k/! (Make ASL sign for letter, move hand forward and backward for each sound)
Then we played and danced!
