Letter "Vv" Recognition Craft Projects
We spend one week reinforcing each letter with crafts and activities after it is introduced.
"Vv" is for Vase of Violets
Draw a general outline of a vase to use as a template to trace onto construction paper for each child to cut out. Give children green strips, purple flower shapes, and a small yellow circle to assemble into violets. We only glued around the outside of the vase to allow the flower stems to be removable.
"Vv" is for Violets
Glue flower shapes all over the letter.
Other ideas for collaging with letter Vv,

Carl's Corner Letter V - This comes with a sheet to color, cut, and paste to the letter.
Violets, Letter V Sponge Painting
Invest in some Alphabet and misc. sponges for crafts like this. They are about $2 or $3 per bag at Walmart. Also available from school supply stores. We use ours to make a page like this for every letter we are learning from September through May. Parents are encouraged to take them home and post them where the child can see and practice every day. When we finish the entire alphabet they can make them into a book or put them into a binder.
"Vv" is for Volcano paper craft
We just made this one as a group for display in our classroom
The Best Kids Book Site Volcano Craft
Make a vest for each child from a large paper grocery bag. Cut a neck hole and two arm holes, and then cut open the front. Invite children to paint or stamp colorful V's all over their vests. Invite children to wear their vests throughout the day or have a vest parade.
Group Time Activity
"Vv" is for Volcano Science Project
How Stuff Works "Erupting
*NOTE: We used wet sand in our sand table instead of dirt. It worked out great! Easy cleanup, just mixed the "lava" up in the sand.
