WHAT ARE OTHER TEACHERS SAYING?

ALL THE INTERESTING DETAILS:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a zipped file, which means it's one big file broken up into 5 smaller, more organized files. It's all simple to open, view, and print!


AN EDITABLE NOTE TO SEND HOME TO FAMILIES: Parents are always wondering what the plan is for Valentine's Day... let me give you a huge head start on your note! Use the one I created or change any of the words and make it perfect for YOUR class! I chose to talk about valentine cards, boxes, and our party. Add or take off anything you want. This note opens in PowerPoint and is super simple to just click on my words and make them your own... then print and you're done!

I also included a table you can quickly type your students names into. Families can then cut these out and use them to glue/tape onto cards OR use the list as a reference as they address the cards themselves. So slick!


A CUTE HEADBAND / HAT FOR KIDS TO MAKE & WEAR: 8 options so it can be personalized for your grade (pre-school, K, 1, 2), say "Happy Valentine's Day!" or just be blank for a simpler look or for kids to add their own sentiments or name. The headband is a large, cute heart (this is where the words might be) that attaches to a sentence strip or construction paper strip. Smaller hearts adorn the rest of the strip. Can be painted, colored, or ???


2 GREAT VALENTINE BOX DECORATING PRINTABLES AND IDEAS: These turn out SO fabulous! Just collect or have kids each send in any cereal box, use the designs I provided, and you're set. One option is to basically cover up the box with cute papers (provided) so all you need is glue and maybe crayons or markers. The other option involves undoing the seams of the box and taping it back together inside out (parents could easily do this if your kids are tiny) and gluing on kid's names (letters are provided) and a big watercolored heart (provided). SOOO cute! A cereal-sized box fits perfectly in backpacks and holds all those cards just right!


CARD SCRAPBOOK: And after the cards go home... how long will it take for mom to get tired of picking them up off the floor and just toss them out? I'm a mom of 3 little kids and I can tell you those cards can get a little crazy! So a scrapbook is the perfect solution! Kids sort the cards into categories (GREAT practice) and simply glue or tape them onto the appropriate page. I've included a nice cover and 9 other pages- even a fill-in-the-blank- to ensure every category is covered! If you don't have time to do this in class, you could always make it an at-home project, too. Moms will thank you :) and kids will LOVE reading through their special cards from their friends!


THE PERFECT HALLWAY PROJECT OR FAMILY GIFT: You will LOVE this project! See how this project turned out in my class! ADORABLE!
Here is the idea:
1. Read The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown. Notice the pattern each page follows: say the most important thing, list three really great details about it, and re-state the most important thing.

2. Choose a project:
The Most Important Thing About Me… students write about themselves and draw a self portrait.
OR
The Most Important Thing About My Family… students write about their family and draw a picture of them.
OR
The Most Important Thing About _____________... you choose to have them write about anyone or anything!
(btw, I love giving teachers options so you can chose which style you like best and what would be most appropriate for the skills of your students. For each of the 3 project ideas, you get 2 different options of writing paper and 3 different styles of drawing paper). :)

3. Decide what to do with the finished product!
Ideas: Hallway or bulletin board display that can be turned into a class book (I use a three ring binder w/ page protectors) or a special gift to be given around conferences, open house, winter holidays or as Valentine’s gift parents would treasure for years to come!

I am SURE you and your students will enjoy this project and have awesome results!

AWESOME CLASSROOM COMMUNITY BUILDER: This is one of my favorite little activities to have going on in my classroom because it’s awesome for building a sense of community and kindness! It empowers kids with a simple way to do something really sweet for one another and let’s them feel how GOOD it feels to make someone smile!

It's perfect for kicking off around Valentine's Day when you're thinking about love and friendship and would be awesome to start and use ANYTIME during the school year!

Here is what happens:
Put out a bucket and a stack of the bucket filling slips (included).

Whenever kids have free time (in the morning or when they finish work early or ??) they can grab a slip and fill it out for a friend in the class. They don’t announce it- just quietly fold up the slip and pop it in the bucket. Teach them to write SPECIFIC ideas, not just “you’re cool.” or “I like you.” Starter ideas are included later in this packet and you could post them by the bucket.

At the end of the day (or whenever you have a spare minute during the day- doesn’t even have to be daily- it could be weekly or ?) you gather everyone around, open the bucket, pull out slips, and you read them aloud.

If a child receives a slip, teach them to look the giver in the eye and say “Thank you, ______!” The giver should look them in the eye and say “You’re welcome, _______!” There will be LOTS of smiles here! Buckets filled all around! Give the slip to the recipient to keep.

The packet also includes a few more ideas for how to manage this.

It's EASY, FUN, and very rewarding!
