ALL ABOUT VALENTINE'S DAY!

This week, our theme is "Valentine's Day!" Throughout the week, we will be incorporating various activities to introduce the letter V. While at home, have your child spy for items that begin with V. They can also point out the letter V. Ask them if it is a capital or lowercase letter. We will continue to introduce rhyming words. We will also be focusing on identifying, building, and writing our names. Some kiddos have mastered writing their first name. Those that are ready will begin to writing their last name. In math, we will be learning about the number 8, the color pink, hearts, and looking at ABC patterns.
