On February 13th, we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day in our classroom.
Giving and receiving valentines is a special part of a child’s school experience and one of their favorites! There are 23 students in our class. Please have your child sign (alone or with your help) each valentine. Leave the envelope blank (with no specific name on it). This enables your child to distribute their valentines without having to read each classmate’s name. If your child is able to independently read the names of the children, then they may choose to write the names on the outside of the envelopes. Please allow time for the name writing process. It’s a lot to write for small hands! This is a great activity for them to practice writing their name, so remember to use upper case only for the first letter of their name. We will begin distributing valentines on Wednesday, February 13th.
We are looking forward to our upcoming conferences on Thursday, February 14th. When you arrive for conferences be sure to take a moment to read the poster in front of our room. We asked the children what love is or who they loved. Their answers are all very sincere and heartfelt and will make you feel so loved!
This week the Kindergarten students wrote valentine cards for soldiers. They are being sent to the Marine barracks at Parris Island. It was also a great opportunity to learn how to write a letter and address a postcard.
Enjoy the beautiful weather and have a wonderful week!
