We only had one day of school this week and there was a 2-hour delay on that day. So all my plans for President’s Day and Money Unit have to be shelved and re-done for the upcoming week. My theme will be Pets but I might push that aside and work on Money instead. Stay tuned for more…
I promised to show you my second set of Learning Centers from Valentine’s week and here they are…
Peek at My Week, Part Deux
I created this game with plastic heart boxes I bought at the Dollar Store years ago. I used white office labels to write the equations. Then I created a worksheet for Froggy. The kids had to help him find the path to the mailbox to mail his valentine. The equations on the worksheet are not all correct. They had to use the boxes to solve the puzzle (Each child had 5 boxes) then color the correct boxes. I think they did pretty well!
What kid doesn’t like Bingo? Each chose a Bingo card that had numbers from 1 to 29. The caller went around the table…each player had their turn to pick a number card and call out the number. The cards are from our calendar set for February (hence the limit to 29 on our Bingo Cards). The kids had a blast!
Note: I made up 20 of these cards so that the entire class can play together which we did later in the week.
BLUE (and Green) Table
Aren’t these Valentine Pet bags adorable? All the pieces (except the bag feet…hmm, I’m thinking long thin heart feet now) are heart cutouts. My co-teacher has her kids trace and cutout their own shapes for projects like this but her class is half my size. Because we have 17, I did the cutting to expedite the craft a bit. The kids chose their own designs and we came up with some suprising results (check out the two different colored ears).
That’s it for our Valentine’s celebration. Hope you found some inspiration here today!!
