Kindergarten Valentines Day

I love Valentine’s Day, or more like Valentine’s month, because it is centered around love! So of course, I love going crazy with tons of Valentine’s day activities for my kindergarten students. The best kindergarten activities are ones that focus on being kind to each other and, of course, use Valentines day to promote letter recognition, like with themed alphabet games for kindergarten. Students always need more practice with letter recognition, so why not use our sight word books and create themed kindergarten learning games and themed alphabet games for kindergarten. I created a fun bundle for Valentine’s Day Activities letter sounds. Through these printable alphabet letters and letter sound recognition games, students are bound to gain a stronger foundation and knowledge that can be used with their sight word books and support their growing phonemic awareness.

Kindergarten Valentines Day is such a fun way to celebrate love! Making it educational is also a must so I like to use these Alphabet activities to add to my Valentines Day activities for kids. Pair this with preschool valentines crafts and valentine's crafts.

Why is letter recognition important?

Letter recognition is a foundational piece for readers to identify words within printed text and begin the process, through phonemic awareness, to associate that text with spoken words. Letter identification as a skill is relatively straight-forward but the ease with which you can devise different exercises and/or games provide us our first and best opportunity to truly bring out the fun and love of learning with your students/kids. So let’s use Valentine’s day to get the kids to fall in love with learning!

Kindergarten Valentines Day is a great way to practice phonemic awareness. Matching upper case letters is the first step to developing strong literacy skills. Pair this activity with Valentines crafts for kids, valentines party idea, and valentine ideas for kids.

Valentines Day Ideas for kids

So just like us, we need to have goals and an idea of what we are hoping to achieve. As a teacher, I’ll make lesson plans with my goals clearly set out. I don’t always get to these, but I do try! As adults, we may makes lists of our “To do” and then slowly check off that list as we complete each task. So, for kids, checklists are SO important. Checklists allows students to develop accountability and the ability to complete tasks on their own.

Kindergarten Valentines Day activities are always so much fun! Checklists are so helpful in setting goals and giving kids a direction. Pair this activity with Valentines crafts for kids, valentines party idea, and valentine ideas for kids.

The valentines day activities letter sounds is divided into three sections:

  1. Matching uppercase letters

  3. Matching upper and lowercase letters

Step 1:

Print, cut and laminate all the hearts and letters within the corresponding kindergarten game. Leave the activity pages at the end for photocopying. I like to start by cutting out the uppercase letters.

Step 3: Play Valentines Day Activities!

The alphabet games for kindergarten are best played sequentially, as I like to have students master the skills before moving onto the next activity. Here I started with matching uppercase letters. Next I set up the cardboard letters for matching lowercase letters. Last I set up the Valentine’s Day matching letter sounds for matching upper and lowercase letters. After students have completed these, I make sure to provide more kindergarten activities like printable alphabet letters games! My students loveeeed these!!
