PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Hey, Sweet Teacher Friends!

The Sweetheart Snatcher is an engaging activity to use around Valentines Day in February. This pack includes multiple curriculum connections that could be used in correspondence with this activity, but allows you to do as little or as much as you want with your particular class. Feel free to use the optional lesson plan included, or adapt it to suit the needs of your students. It will also add to any candy heart activities you do to celebrate the season - i.e. graphing, sorting, etc.

During the hunt, students are encouraged to either make predictions or inferences. Afterwards, you may complete any or all of the extension activities included.

Above all, celebrate the sweetness of the season with your students and have fun! Your kiddos will LOVE the thrill of the hunt!

Hi again,
I e-mailed you on Monday about changing your Sweetheart Snatcher (thank you for responding), but I haven't heard from you. I have a feeling you're not getting my e-mails or I'm not getting yours back. My e-mail is erica4622@sbcglobal.net and I'm just asking that you change "gym" to "cafeteria" on clue #5. Thanks again!

Hi Abby,
I noticed below that you were willing to change the "gym" page for another buyer. I was wondering if I could do the same, as we don't have a gym at my school. Thank you so much for your help!

Hi Abby,
I was setting up your sweetheart catcher and for clue #5 you have "gym" which is non existent at my school site. Could you possibly change it for me to Hall of Fame which is an area where we have assemblies, or just sent me a blank template for that one page so I can make a change otherwise I will never get to clue 6. Thanks!
