Valentine's Day is on its Way!

Today our books were Secret Valentine, by Catherine Stock, and The Mommy Book, by Todd Parr. Getting in the mood for Valentine's Day. We talked about O's for hugs and X's for kisses, as these feature in both books.

Here are two cute rhymes we used today. You can make up the hand motions to go along with them.

Valentine Fingerplay
(to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat, sort of)

Cut, cut, cut with scissors
Paste, paste, paste with glue,
Color, color, color with crayons
Here's a valentine just for you!

My Valentine is Red
(to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)

My valentine is red,
My valentine is blue,
I drop it in the letterbox
And mail it off to you.

We sang the second one over and over, faster and faster, along with hand motions.

And then we made---  Butterfly Valentines! 


construction paper
valentine stickers
wiggly eyes
pipe cleaner for antenna (I stapled mine on, some were glued)
