Happy February

It is so hard to believe that February is here. 2013 is going fast!!

I wanted to make something really cute for Valentine's Day. So, I started making this game and didn't get it finished until tonight. Instead of a cute Valentine name, I just named it Spanish Heart Vowel Match. You can use it for a Valentine's Day activity if you want. It can be used anytime because it is to cute. I found this sweet little red box at the Dollar Tree along with a set of clothespins.

Students select a card and find the vowel that it starts with. By using the clothespins to mark the letter, they will be strengthening those fine motor muscles. I think that I might try to find some smaller clothespins or even colored ones to add to my game. I am also going to place a sticker on the back where the correct letter is to make it self-checking.

Have a great Valentine's Day with your loved ones!

I like the combination of work with initial sounds and work with fine motor skills. Thanks for sharing, Anne

I love the idea of using the clothes pins. Like you said, it's a great way to prefect those fine motor skills!

Cute idea! BTW, I just bought some adorable clothespins at Michaels in their dollar spot. They have a thick sticker like covering and are floral or patterned like fancy scrapbook paper.
