Before we had our great Valentine’s Day Celebration, we took a great deal of time talking about the friendships.  We specifically discussed how to make friends, what we do with our friends, and how we can keep or help our friends in our classroom.  Above is a picture of our sweet wire hearts we gave to our mommies for Valentine’s Day.

Each child got their own copy of a friendship book I created using pictures of the children doing different activities with their friends throughout the school year.  They dictated the words of the book to me, and then we read the books during our meeting time.

The kids loved our Friendship flower shop that we set up in the dramatic play area.  The shop had a cash register, flowers, money, bracelets and necklaces, and lots of loose flowers!

We had so much fun in both of our Valentine’s sensory bins, the Valentine’s Soup and white beans with lots of Valentine’s goodies.

The Valentine’s play dough got lots of use from everyone in the classroom.  I always love to go into the art room after they are done and see what types of creations have been left behind by their busy fingers.

Cupid’s fruit kebobs were one of our favorite snacks as well!  They are getting so adept at serving themselves, and preparing their own snacks.

Some other fun Valentine’s fun included the Sweethearts game pictured below.  They had to roll the dice and fill up the Sweethearts board with heart candies.

L and D were loving the spin art hearts we made!

Each child got to work on a “Friendship Painting” by rolling balls in a box by working together to get the paint splattered all over the paper.  At the end of the painting they each painted their hand and put in on top of the picture.

We also gave ideas for what our recipe for friendship would be during morning meeting.

One of our favorite baking activities was making a loaf of friendship bread.  We made two loaves, and gave one loaf to our favorite assistant Brittany! 

 

Now that I am back up and running on my computer, I should get us up to date on our blogs and happenings in the classroom!
