February Paragraph of the Day

Valentine's Day week is always full of excitement. I wanted to keep kids learning and reviewing skills, but still wanted them to join in on a fun theme! That is why I created a unit where the students would be engaged, but also learning and practicing higher level skills! I hope your kiddos are as engaged as mine are during this week!

Much Love,
