Week 18 Letter Vv, star word 'to', Geometric Solids, and THE BEACH!

Check out the VALENTINE LIST above if you want a head start this weekend....

We are off to the BEACH!
I just love this theme for to beat the winter blues!
Here are a few books we read this week:
    

We began our week with a little dropper painting...

 Gorgeous!


On Tuesday we created coconut trees 
with our last names as the letters.


The kids just LOVE to work 
"wherever their little hearts desire!"


We actually had two new rounds of morning challenges:
Coconut tree counting by 5's...


Real Words and Silly Words Fish:


Beach Vocabulary Word Building...




Wednesday's centers included creating these lovely 
sea horses:



This team worked on SH and S sounds with SHARKS!



 Here we are working on ABC order with DOLPHINS!


This Social Studies table was  
LONG AGO and TODAY sort...


On Wednesday we also created these lovely 
MERMAIDS and MERMEN!
They are just lovely!



Remember Monday's dropper painting?
Here the sea creatures are in the hallway!
 Just BEAUTIFUL!

And finally here is our COCONUT trees! 



Our new morning challenges included:
Fishy numeric order...
