Valentine's Week Blessings


What a fun Valentine's week! Holidays are so different for me when I get to spend them with children. This past week we had a Valentine's party at school and the children were permitted to dress up for the holiday. They looked so cute. I'm so used to seeing them in uniforms so this was a nice change.


The students in my Mini-Mustang class are the youngest at our school (2.75 - 3 years old). I have to be creative as I want them to learn but at the same time have fun. By this time, they all know and recognize the first letter of their name. They can identify their own cubby and find their seat with their name.

I cut out assorted color hearts and wrote all the letters of their names on each one. I scrambled the hearts and placed them in the middle of the table. The children had to find all the letters of their name. I could see them looking at the letters of their name tags as they searched. I was so thrilled as they were successful in this task. I added a red heart at the beginning of their hearts and they drew a nose and added googly eyes and we stapled it all together.


To help with math, I brought in a bag of chocolate kisses. They have bags of red, pink and silver at this time of year. I had the children sort them on a graph. Then they had to count each row and tell me which color had the most and which color had the least.


The children also got to sort little candy hearts by color. The challenge I had was to be sure they weren't eating all the candies. I was so glad this activity went well as my principal popped in unannounced to see how our class was doing. :)

We have a wonderful Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA)at our school. Since I celebrated my birthday in February, I was presented with an individual bundt cake decorated so pretty. I'm saving it in my fridge. Yum, yum!

My husband Greg and I had a quiet Valentine's Day at home. That was perfectly fine with me after the busy week at school. After thirty years of marriage, it's so nice to hear the words "I love you" and to simply sit and hold his hand. After going through many ups and downs in our lives, we're at a place where we appreciate one other and enjoy spending time together. We love to sit in our living room as we talk about what's on our hearts as we listen to soft romantic music.


I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day. I know many people have lost loved ones or maybe are in a season of being alone. I think of my dad as he misses my mom. I think of my friend who is newly divorced and another who hasn't married but would love to find the right man. Just remember that there is someone who loves you and His name is Jesus. God is love; the only perfect love.


Blessings and love,

What cute activities for your kiddos. How creative! We were so busy assisting with the new baby that we had a pretty uneventful Valentine's Day.

Always enjoy your posts!

Hi Debbie! What a great exercise in learning, and then getting a sweet treat!
My daughter and her family were in for the weekend, and it was so fun to reconnect with the grands.
Valentines Day is more fun with little ones around :)
Blessings,
Ceil

The kids are adorable, and I love the projects you did with them. I have to admit, though, I myself would have been hard-pressed not to eat the kisses and hearts!!

GOD BLESS!
