Our Valentine Colors

We are getting ready to start our local co-op up again, and I’ve been busy planning classes for the toddler/preschoolers. I thought I’d share what I have planned for our Valentine’s Day lesson---the Wordless Book.

What’s the Wordless Book?
The Wordless Book is a tool to help Christians tell others about God's plan of salvation.
I have done the Wordless Book in a preschool class a couple years ago. I compiled all my findings, links, and printables in my Wordless Book lens on Squidoo. While working on that piece, I came across the idea of The Gospel Fuzzies from Quirky Momma’s blog. After researching it a bit, I decided that this presentation of the Wordless book would be perfect for my young co-op class this year.
pompoms
To start off, I purchased pom poms in the colors of the Wordless book: red, green, white, black, gold/yellow. I have them placed in a container for our sensory bin.

Then I have plastic tongs and craft foam to use as sorting mats. We’ll sort some of the pom poms by color.
glove
After having some sorting fun, I’ll say something to the effect that these colors remind me of a song. I’ll then pull out the Gospel Fuzzy glove and teach them the song and the meaning of the colors. [I am going to make a glove ahead of time for each child.]
gospelfuzzybooklet
I created a mini-booklet of the song. Each child will glue the correct Gospel Fuzzy on the page.

We might do some patterning too.
gfthumbsI’ve created all these resources for my class and hopefully you will find them useful too!

We made Gospel Fuzzies for our MOPS group last year, and the kids all LOVED them.

this is awesome! Our momstown moms get together monthly to create 'educational make & take' activities and this is a great concept for us to create together. We often do file folder games which get a bit boring - this is a great idea! thanks!

I go to Cuba and take things to assist the pastors in their ministry. I was looking for something I could show them to make with a glove and this is perfect. I will have to get it translated into spanish but that is no problem. Thanks so much for sharing this idea.
