These Preschool Centers and February Fine Motor Activities are perfect for young children. As a basic foundation in any preschool classroom is to provide plenty of opportunities for kids to get hands-on, effective fine motor practice.

The activities in this post are included in this Valentine’s Day Math and Literacy Preschool pack.

I’ve included so many freebies in this post. They are mostly 1 or 2 pages each from some of the activities included in the pack.

I’ve done this so you can try them out in your preschool / homeschool to see how your kids benefit from them.

February Preschool Activities

Finger Counting Puzzles

The first activity we did is matched the number digits to the matching finger counting image.

These puzzles are so easy to assemble and complete! Your students will LOVE them.

I laminated them and got the students to show me their fingers as they count the numbers and them find the puzzle with the same number of fingers.

Color Matching Clip Cards

These clip cards are also very easy to assemble, just cut them up and have the kids clip the matching color of the heart each kid is holding. You can even use any counters or buttons to get the kids to show their answers.

Shape Mazes

Have you ever used mazes with your kids? They will love these! They can use a dry erase marker to trace around the maze to find the exit.

That way if they make any errors you can easily erase those and start over. The best part about these is they learn the shape name as they trace.

Upper and Lowercase Letter Clip Cards

Are your kiddos working on matching their upper and lowercase letters yet?

Little miss 2 hasn’t started this although she is so eager to work on everything all at once, it’s too early to use these with her but preschoolers aged 4 or 5 can easily work on this skill to get them even more ready for kindergarten.

Uppercase Letter Identification Find & Cover the Chocolates on the Heart.

Do you have some mini chocolates laying around?

Use them or even little MnM’s (who doesn’t love those) and get the kids to identify the chocolates with the uppercase letter in the middle.

You can use any manipulative of course but chocolate just makes everything more fun!

abc match cards valentines

I love this activity because it allows even toddlers to work on identifying matching letters on one card.

You can use different manipulatives so not just buttons for this one.

Here are some more activities in the pack, add these fun Valentine’s Day themed picture cards to your busy bags or preschool fine motor centers.

Just use pom poms, mini erasers or any colored counters and have the kids place each one in the empty circles.

You can use large tongs for these for even more practice.

February lesson plans for preschool

Combine these activities and laminate them to be used in various literacy and math centers in your classroom.

Here’s another fun activity we did together, matching the beginning sound letter to the image shown in the circles on the Valentine bees.

Great for developing fine motor skills AND phonics. Grab bottle caps, dot stickers and a marker. Use those to label the letters and you’re set to go!

Here’s the picture after they have completed it:

Some preschoolers will find this activity difficult, so you can definitely differentiate this activity with the options given in the pack.

There are letter filled circles and image filled ones so you can get your ELL’s to work on matching their letters for example and your more able students to work on beginning sounds. 😉

Preschool February Activities

Letter, Word or Number?

This fun pocket chart activity will have the kids wanting to play this everyday!

After laminating the cards, have the kids sort between the letters, words or numbers and place them underneath the correct heading. The first page is free.

Alphabet Missing Letter Mailbox Letter Match

This activity helps kids identify the beginning letter sound. Just print the mailbox cards and place them in a pocket chart or on the table in a center.

The kids can sort and match the ‘letter cards’ under the correct mailbox.

Here are some more activities included in the full February preschool pack.

Preschoolers can work on their middle vowel sounds / CVC words with this center.

They match the CVC words with the missing vowels to the correct owl house. I used a pocket chart for this activity but you can definitely also do this at a center.

This center is one of my favorites.

Students get to pick a number card (or you can use number blocks or any pre-made mini number cards), and have the kids match that number of letters onto the Bunny Mail Mat. So much fun!
