Valentine's Day

We had a very fun and busy day on Monday.  I was so excited to share all these neat activities with my class - a huge THANK YOU goes to all the wonderful teachers who have shared ideas on their blogs!

These are my 2 new favorite books!

We started out with Literature in the morning.  We read 2 stories together and created projects to go along with them.  Then, we talked about how they are similar (and today we'll create a Venn Diagram to compare/contrast them - we just ran out of time yesterday).


  1. What a fun day!! It looks like your students had a great time. Are they racing to pick up hearts with chop sticks? This game looks like a lot of fun. I know I'm wanting my kids to try this game next year.

  2. Yes! They had such a great time! They are so surprised of how many they estimate vs. how many they can actually pick up. It's much harder then they think. I know your students will love it too! Thanks for visiting:)

  3. I would love to have a copy of your activity. I do some similar things with the math ideas you have included but the LA things are great as well as the different sorts. How can I get a copy for next year? Thanks!


  4. Rochell - Thanks for visiting:) I will get my "packet" together and post it here for you. I just need to get it from my work computer.

  5. Has the packet been posted? I couldn't find it. I'd love to use these next year!


  6. I would also like to use this packet next year. It looks like your students had a blast.
