Valentine's Day was so much fun for my kiddos. I know it is a commercialized holiday, but I love it nonetheless. My hubby and I are pretty low-key about the day, eating at our favorite Japanese restaurant and sharing an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. This year, that cake disappeared too quickly--teenage boys.
In the classroom, I love the excitement that builds up to the "BIG" day. My kiddos can't contain their excitement to pass out their cards and goodies. I love that my students are so engaged and eager, and the whole time they are learning. I have posted a few pics of our activities.
February Poetry Collection- I have the year bundle. They are absolutely FAB.U.LOUS! We read Monster Love. It is an absolutely wonderful story about a monster that feels like he doesn't belong, until he finds someone that loves "him". It is my new favorite book.
The heart craft idea I got online, but I can no longer find the link. If you know whose idea this is, please let me know to credit them. My kiddos wrote a note to their parents on back by completing the sentence stem, "If you'll be my Valentine..." Their letters were very touching.
They came out so cute!
The vertical contraction came form Aimee over at Primarily Speaking. Both of these crafts were a perfect/cute way to practice our contractions.
Of course we did candy sorting and graphing.
We made Love Potion Floats - Cherry 7-Up, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a maraschino cherry.
That is a wrap.
I hope your day was filled with love!
