My Small Potatoes

Two years ago in the beginning of blogging, I found Arlee. I am still totally mesmerized by her post. She is the mother and teacher I want to be. Her posts are full of beautiful photographs, amazing art ideas and just mind-blowing things to use with toddlers and preschoolers.

Valentine’s Day 2014

The most red and pink  celebration. Since I am back to the young kids, I had to search high and low looking for the perfect and unexpensive activity for them.

I found a couple of ideas such as:

A little something to start 1st grade, say HELLO

Hello! That’s the way to start first grade and any grade.

For first grades and preschoolers, writing is a super difficult task. There are still getting how to hold the pencil. So, copying from the board is out of question yet. The answer… tracing!

Also to start the idea is learn how to say HELLO, GOODBYE, WHAT’S YOUR NAME? WHO ARE YOU?… simple courtesy.

To get started: printables right here

Enough for a week of work. Enjoy!

By the way, Thank you. New  record of views.

PS. I just realized (15:45) that you might need the font for the printable, otherwise it will look like Times New Roman or something similar. Download it here and unzipped in your FONTS folder. It should be on c://Windows/fonts or perform a search for the FONTS folder.
