Preschool: Free Valentine’s Day Word Matching Game
ED has been working a lot on letter sounds and simple -at and -an words. I made this Valentine’s themed word matching activity for her to work on over the next couple of weeks. She has to attach the clothes peg to the matching word on the wheel. It took some cutting pasting to put it together, but if you’d like to make your own you can download the pages I made here–Valentine’s Day Word Match.
On Tuesday, I’ll be sharing another Valentine freebie (math) that I made for my 8 year old.
Other Valentine’s Day themed activities:
Math Grid: We’ll play lots of grid games where you roll the die and cover that many spaces until someone’s board is completely filled. The one we’re using is no longer available but you can find a cute Valentine bear grid game over at PreKinders.
Counting Cards: I have some activities that are no longer available, but there’s a similar count and clip activity at 2 Teaching Mommies called Cupid Clip Cards. Nicole at Tired Needs Sleep has very cute heart counting cards. You can find a Valentine’s number match up at Confessions of a Homeschooler.
Jill over at Enchanted Homeschooling Momhas a very cute set of 1-12 number cards with Valentine owls.
Storage:Here’s how I stored some of the loose bits in ED’s workbox. I just stapled two heart together and glued another small heart to the front. Simple, but it helps contain the mess!
Other Letter V and Valentine Ideas: This letter hunt is by Erica over at Confessions of a Homeschooler. She has lots of other great ideas in this post. I really love the dry erase activity center that ED got for Christmas because you can slip other sheets (like Erica’s printable) inside as well as the ones it came with. (I see it is currently $14.78 at Amazon.)
Valentine Crafts: There’s lots of good craft ideas at Activity Village and at the Crafty Crow. DD made the penguin and tissue paper heart card to the left for an elderly family friend who is quite ill.
