Such cuties - they definitely have a part of my heart!
It has taken me a while to recover from yesterday's festivities! The kiddos had so much fun and my room mom and parent volunteers hosted a fabulous Valentines party. They even had a cute cupid arrow shooting contest using straws and Q-tips (the arrows) and aiming for different sized bowls. Genius! With all of the sugar draining from my system slowly - I still feel so meh - I thought I would post a bit of our vowel pair kinesthetic exercise from today.
Over at Learning with Mrs. Parker her kiddos were learning about vowel pairs by becoming a vowel pair. Brilliant, no?! So we watched the awesome Between the Lions clip and talked about how "when two vowels come a walkin', the first one does the talkin' and the second one says nothing at all." I paired each kiddo up and gave each student a letter from a vowel pair. Then, the students linked arms and the student holding the first vowel said the long vowel sound while his/her partner said nothing. Then they switched! They absolutely loved it!
