D is for Dinosaurs, Valentine's Day

My apologies for the delay in posting this week.  As most of you know, I was out of town this weekend and took a personal day on Monday & Tuesday morning.  David had President's Day off so I decided to fly down to Florida to spend the weekend with him. :) I made sure the kiddos were in good hands, requesting a regular sub at our school. Of course I still missed them and was excited to walk in the door on Tuesday to a rush of smiles and hugs!

Sweet Jada even made me an "I Miss You" card! <3

Last week, we focused on the letter D, celebrated Valentine's day, introduced subtraction (or "taking away"), and started work on Famous Americans with Betsy Ross and the original flag.  Next week, a book on all the important figures in history that kindergarten kids need to know will come home. :0)

For the letter D, we turned D and d into dinosaurs and turned our hands into ducks!

I love the variety of dinosaurs!

And despite getting the same instructions and materials, I ALWAYS love
the variation in products. So cute!

To introduce subtraction, on Valentine's Day we made a chocolate box and ate some of the chocolates:

We also graphed using candy conversation hearts and played the game "Face Off." (You should have gotten two of these game boards in your child's folder.) To play Face Off, players take turns rolling two dice and finding the sum.  The player to roll the dice finds the matching numeral on his/her game board and places a heart in that space. The first player to cover his/her board wins!

And Cristian's mom made us cupcakes as a special valentine treat!

Friday was REPTILE DAY and we got to visit the Library to see some exotic reptiles!

As always, owl be teaching you tomorrow!
