Valentines Day in the PreK Speech Room

Valentine's Day is coming! This is a great holiday to work on in your speech room.  Everyone can use a little kindness and love, right? This week in my speech room, we'll be working on Valentine's Day related vocabulary and activities.  Here's what we are up to:
Songs:
Valentine's Day Song by Jack Hartmann
Boom Chicka Boom Valentine's Song by The Learning Station
Books:
Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse! by Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond
The Day it Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond
Activities:
This kit has 5 different interactive books to target a variety of goals: actions, nouns, plurals, prepositions, and wh-questions.
There is a Valentine's Day picture sort.
There are four different Let's Talk About It pages that target a variety of wh-questions using real photographs.
There are two pages that focus on Valentine's Day riddles. There are 9 different pictures of Valentine's Day vocabulary words and cards that contain riddles to guess "what is it?"
There are two pages that you can send home to parents to carryover the Valentine's Day theme.
Last, there is a picture list of some Valentine's Day favorite books to use in your speech room.
To work on articulation during Valentine's Day season, I have these articulation pages that are super easy to print and use for all of my student's articulation sounds. My student's LOVE using glue to put their words up onto the hearts.  I usually cut the pictures out quickly before they start, but if your students are working on cutting and you have time, they could cut out the pictures too.  These are also great to send home for homework.

Valentine's Day Craft
I bought these heart "doilies" and am planning on having students glue them to red or pink paper and then glue some articulation words (from my Glue and Say Articulation packet) to the hearts.  For students that don't have articulation words, we'll either glue vocabulary words (from my PreK Language Theme Kit) or follow directions by decorating with stickers, crayons, stampers, and maybe some glitter glue.  Have I mentioned that my kids LOVE to glue things? LOL!
**update!  The craft turned out great!  My students LOVED gluing everything onto the pages.  Have I mentioned they love to glue things? LOL!!! 

Have a great time with Valentine's Day!
