This week the activities in our classroom will focus on Valentine’s Day, friendship and the Post Office. Circle time activities will include reading books and discussing the importance of sharing, giving, kindness and friendship. We will deliver Valentine cards to our friend’s mailbags and explore the Post Office set up in the dramatic play area. Other activities planned for the week include:
-playing musical hearts and other Valentine games
-sponge painting hearts
-making a Valentine card for our families
-a letter K is for kite activity and
-learning Valentine songs and poems at music time. One the children love to
recite is: “I love you, I love you, I love you divine,
Please give me your bubblegum, you’re sitting on mine!”
