Valentine's Day Round-Up

Hello hello!  Are you ready for Valentine's Day? I decided to focus on the Olympics this week instead of Valentine's Day, so I won't be doing any
activities with my kids, but you'd better believe we'll be having a sweet treat or two!  Since I'm missing out on the heart-shaped fun, I decided to do a little round-up of the sweet stuff I did last year with my own Valentines.
We learned how to write letters to our secret valentines, then put them in the mail.   Some of mine had never received mail before...one boy kept his envelope in his folder until June.  It was a huge hit!  Click any picture to check out the original post. 






We learned about opposites using the song "A Bushel and A Peck"  and made a cute re-mixed craftivity for our bulletin board.  My favorite remix was "I love you an elephant and a penny."



We ate Valentine's Day trail mix, which was super easy to make and transport and gets an A+ from me!  


While we ate our V-Day trail mix, we read my new favorite Valentine's Day book.  This one is a keeper- if you're studying figurative language, rhymes, parody, rhythm in poetry...or ahem...Valentine's Day, read it!


How do you celebrate Valentine's Day in your classroom?
