PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Please visit my blog, www.CFClassroom.com, for daily tips and photos to organize and manage your classroom.

This thematic kit includes modified versions of each activity so that it may be used by all of your K-3 learners. Please visit my blog post dated 1/7/11 to see more pictures and video of this product.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Graphing Hearts..................................................................................page 1
Use a box of conversation hearts to complete the graph. Younger learners could do this as a center activity with adult guidance. Older learners may complete it independently and then record observations in a math journal.

Making Words......................................................................................page 2
Cut the letters at the bottom apart and use them as manipulatives to construct words. You could have younger learners create word families and brainstorm other words using those word families.

Poetry Craft...........................................................................................page 3
Print a copy for each student. Either attach a photo of the student or have each child draw a self-portrait in the box. Decorate the image using a collage technique and pieces of string, ribbon, paper, etc. As a challenge, you could have the students underline the verbs and circle the nouns.

Opposites Attract Antonym Game.............................................page 4
Print one copy of the cards and laminate for durability (optional). Cut each card in half in a variety of patterns so that the cards become self-correcting. Print a copy of the worksheet (page 5) for each student. The children match a word with it's antonym and record it onto the worksheet. They may then record their own list of antonyms.

Hugs and Kisses Sight Word Activity..................................page 6
Hugs and Kisses are represented with Xs and Os so what better way to practice sight words than with a tic-tac-toe game. Print as many copies as you would like for your students to play with. Another option is to slide a copy into a clear page protector and use dry erase markers. You could also project this page onto a Smart board. One student is Xs and the other is Os. Before marking the box, the child needs to read the sight word.

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates Computation Game.....page 7
Included are two versions of this game. One reinforces basic addition facts and the other focuses on the 3's table in multiplication. You will need to add 2 dice to this game. Each game comes with a game board and recording sheet (print one per player) as well as a printable sign to place at the center.

Hogs and Kisses Writing Activity........................................page 13
After completing this writing activity you will have an adorable bulletin board to display. The students will be using their senses to complete a descriptive writing project about Hershey's Kisses. Included are: a graphic organizer to guide the brainstorming/webbing process and three levels of writing paper making it applicable for grades Pre-K through 5th. I have the students make paper pigs using craft supplies to display with the writing. I have included a bulletin board sign to print and add as your title.

What is Love? Class Book............................................................page 18
After completing this writing activity you will have an adorable class book. Included are: a graphic organizer to guide the brainstorming/webbing process and three levels of writing paper making it applicable for grades Pre-K through 5th. I do this every year and it is always hysterical. I even displayed copies of this class book at my wedding. I've included a cover for you to use with your book.

Valentine's Math Activities.........................................................page 22
Included are two levels of math activities that focus on estimating, number sense and computation.
