To get you started, this great kit includes all of the items below. This is ideal for helping you get your classroom excited about the holiday and is an ideal activity to keep them busy and having fun during centers, small groups, or those free time hours.
Materials Needed for Valentine’s Day Initial Sound and Number Match-Ups:
Getting Valentine’s Day Initial Sound and Number Match-Ups Ready:
Print the match-ups (Color or Black & White), laminate and cut using a paper trimmer. Gather all of the pieces and place in a plastic container. I love using plastic pencil cases to store centers like these. It keeps everything in one place and does not take up a ton of space.
This obviously doesn’t take a ton of time to put together and makes a wonderful activity to help your kids have fun and learn at the same time.
Doing Valentine’s Day Initial Sound and Number Match-Ups
Students will start the activity by choosing a mailbox card. My daughter was doing the initial sounds match-up and choose the mailbox with the letter H.
Students will then sort through all of the picture cards looking for the ones that start with the letter H.
Each mailbox has six letter cards with pictures. Once the mailbox has six letters, you can move on to a new letter and start again.
Another way this could be completed, is to have all of the mailboxes laid out on a table or even the floor. Students will then sort the remaining puzzles pieces according to their initial sound or number.
If you have younger (or struggling) students that would be overwhelmed by the number of puzzle pieces in this activity, scale it back. Provide them with only a handful of cards, instead of all six. Once they master those, you can slowly add in more.
