Happy Valentine's Day!

Last week we started decorating our room for Valentine's Day and also talked some about Dental Health and how to keep our teeth clean and healthy.  

We made caterpillars using our math and writing skills!  First, students had to make a pattern with their hearts, and then write one letter of their name on each heart.  Lots of concentration necessary!

We used liquid watercolors to paint a construction paper heart, because love comes in all colors :) 

 We enjoyed a fun math game where we got to eat the game pieces!  Candy hearts are always a fun Valentine's treat!

After talking about brushing our teeth all week, we tried to imagine what elephants use to brush their teeth.  Miss Katie thought it would be fun to try to make elephant's toothpaste, so we gave it a try!  We mixed hydrogen peroxide, dish soap, yeast, and warm water to get an amazing result.  The foam flowed out of the bottle, looking just like a giant squeeze of toothpaste!

The dentist also came to visit us on Friday.  Several of the kids got picked from the audience to help out.  All of the children should have gotten a water bottle filled with goodies to take home.  

This week we will continue to celebrate Valentine's Day.  We will have our party on Thursday and kids are welcome to bring Valentines for their friends.  You should have received a class list last week; if you need a new one please let us know.  

Have a great week!
