I can't believe it is almost Valentine's Day?! Where has the time gone? Even though I am out of the classroom until the end of March, I don't want my kiddos to miss out on anything. That includes special valentines from their teacher. So, I found these super cute foam apples in the dollar section at Target (don't you just LOVE that dollar section!!!??)
and thought they would be perfect for little valentines with pencils for my kids! Here's a pic of the finished product
Not too bad considering I pretty much had to make these during nap time. It's amazing what you can do with a little puffy paint and creativeness! LOL! I also started preparing some of the games and stuff from my "How Sweet it is..." Valentine's Day Unit.
I can't wait for my kiddos to play this love bug themed synonym match up game! They love getting up out of their seats to "mingle", as we call it!
One of my teacher friends sent me pictures of her students using this activity in her room. I love seeing how teachers choose to use my products! Here you can see she chose to use it as a center match-up game and followed it up with the practice sheet.
One of my favorite Valentine's Day writing craftivities is, "The Sweetest Thing...". Students write about the sweetest thing they've ever done. Then they publish it on a Hershey kiss or a heart! Here's the sample I am sending in for my sub (sorry it's a bit messy... was trying to make it one handed!)
I love making this into a bulletin board after the kiddos have shared their stories. You can grab the tracer and writing papers for this ADORABLE craftivity from my unit by clicking the picture and downloading them for Free!!
Have a great Thursday!
