We enjoyed celebrating Valentine’s Day with special lessons, games, and activities throughout the day. We learned who St. Valentine was and why the day is named for him. We also had lots of fun at our party!
We each started with 3 numbers and had to put them in order from least to greatest. Then we merged the numbers with our group, and then we had to merge all the groups into 1 big line.
We practiced words with long o sounds spelled in several ways by playing a telephone spelling game. This is like “old-fashioned” texting and then we got to add together all the numbers we used to spell the word and see how much the word was worth.
Now that we’ve learned more about the different ways same sounds can be spelled, we can start exploring the world of homophones, which are words that sound the same, but are spelled differently and have different meanings. We started our exploration with a 2-color card match game.
