Valentine’s Day Learning

We’ve had a fun week celebrating Valentine’s Day.  To kick the week off we were invited to a God is Love party.  The boy had a lot of fun learning all about how much God loves him.  Then he got to create a Valentine just for God.  God is Love

The rest of the week we continue our Valentine themed fun. 

Language Arts: I was really excited when I came across Mama Jenn’s Little Letter Collection. I used her idea and the boy’s words to create a Valentine’s letter for the boy’s Daddy.  He had a great time tracing the letters and then decorating it.  He couldn’t wait to give it to his Daddy when he got home that day. If you don’t have the time or the resources to create your own, don’t fret.  Mama Jenn offers free generic ones you can download.

Math: We did quite a few math activities. Most of them were taken from the Sweetheart Valentine unit from 2 Teaching Mommies and were old hat for the boy.  However, I was really excited about introducing him to the Valentine's 100 Chart Art from Lil’ Country Kindergarten.  I wasn’t surprised that he wanted to quit before he was done, but I made him complete the red.  He finished the picture off the next day.  Once he started to figure out the image, it definitely was a little more exciting for him.  I plan to include this type of activity again.

Science: Of course we couldn’t have a Valentine’s Day theme without including one of the boy’s favorite activities, candy observations.  Below he’s tasting a sweetheart to find out if it’s sweet, sour or salty.
