6. Valentine's Day Cutting Strips

Recommended for ages 3-4Cutting strips are a great way to practice cutting for young children.You, the adult, can prep this activity by cutting them lengthwise.This allows your children to cut each image with one snip.

The snips can also be used after, for gluing activities.

7. Counting and Number Symbols - Part 1

Recommended for ages 3-4Print the sheet at cut out each of the 4 boxes. Have your child count the items in each box and then circle the corresponding number symbol below.In a Montessori classroom, an activity like this would be done with clothespins, where the child clips the clothespin over the correct number symbol. This is a great way to add fine motor development into the activity.  Go here to download this page:https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0536/5530/6394/files/Valentine_s_Counting_and_Number_Symbols_-_Part_1.pdf?v=1707283168



8. Counting and Number Symbols - Part 2

Recommended for ages 3-5This 2-page printable is a great next step to Part 1. In this printable, the number symbol is not provided so children are required to count the items and then write the number symbol on the left.  For children newer to number symbols, start by only offering page 1, with quantities of 1-4. Once they have mastered this page, add in page 2.Go here to download the sheet: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0536/5530/6394/files/Valentine_s_Counting_and_Number_Symbols_-_Part_2.pdf?v=1707283168
