Laughing, Loving, and Learning Together

A New Week

on February 5, 2012

While the rest of the world watches the Superbowl and my sick Little Bear vegges out with Dora and Diego, I’m planning for the week ahead. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, our theme this week will be friendship. Our letter of the week will be the letter Hh.

Planned activities include the following:

Letter Hh
Decorate capital H with heart stickers. Use shape cut-outs to transform lowercase h into a house.

Hh lunch
Ham, honeydew melon, hash browns, hummus & vegetables, hot chocolate

Practice cutting hearts out of construction paper. Make a handprint hen.

Read the story of the Good Samaritan. Talk about what it means to be a friend. Memorize Proverbs 17:17.

Help make hot chocolate.

Gross Motor Skills
Practice hopping; play outdoor games with hula hoop.

Language Arts
Read stories about friendship. Complete the sentence “I am happy when _______.” Make a book of h words.

Measure and compare heights. Practice dividing items in half.

Learn the songs “What A Friend We Have In Jesus” (Friendship) and “H Says Hi” (Letter H). Sing “Make New Friends” and “If You’re Happy and You Know It” (Letter H). Do “The Hokey-Pokey” dance. Play Hot Potato.

Social Studies
Make a friendship photo collage. Read about housing in Children Just Like Me: A Unique Celebration of Children Around the World and Houses and Homes.

Read about the sense of hearing; arrange hand bells by sound; play Sound Bingo.
