Today we read the story Valentine Friends in celebration of our upcoming Valentine’s Day party. After we read the story we created a heart shaped web illustrating the main idea and details from the story.
In the story the characters learned how to make construction paper hearts, so we used the directions in the story to make construction paper hearts. On the hearts we wrote about one key detail we learned from the story.
In Kindergarten we’ve been learning about how to subtract. We started off with playing a subtraction game on http://www.starfall.com where students practiced learning how to take away a quantity and solve the equation.
We then read the story “Will You Be My Valentine?” and then created subtraction story problems about getting valentine candy.
