Hearts Galore!

We have always found that the heart is the one shape that everyone knows when entering pre-k and kindergarten. Why? Is it just because it is a heart? Who knows? But since Valentine’s Day is a day that is eagerly anticipated by our students, we worked with hearts every which way we could think of! From listening to hearts to writing on hearts; it was definitely a hearts galore week! Plus we gave our hearts away to Mr. Hatch, the wonderful character from the popular story, Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch.  Check out the heart filled activities!

We listened to our hearts with stethoscopes.  We wrote on hearts using conversation hearts, and then we got to eat them! We used all different shapes and sizes of hearts to make our own puppets.  Here are some great fine motor activities: Squeezing heart shaped sponges, unlocking my heart! (a great find from a euro  store), Picking up pasta shaped hearts with tweezers and putting the correct number of hearts on a pipe cleaner using Valentine’s Day cards. (Use two cards for addition!)
