Last Minute Valentine's Day Freebie!


Hello Monday everyone! At least it’s not a full moon Monday! That coming from the girl that worked a half day – the half with the special AND recess in it! Plus, all the hearts and lovey dovey stuff may have created a "Cloud 9" kind of day! 

Every year for Valentine’s Day we ask parents to send in the same things: ice cream, syrup, sprinkles, bananas, pineapple, and conversation hearts. Every year I get about 50 billion conversation hearts! Over the years my team has become quite resourceful with conversation hearts
 
This post has some activities we do with the countless conversation hearts we’ve already collected!

Click this will take you the Google Documents File with these!


The files include a few graphing choices to fit your needs and....
- Measuring with Hearts
- Writing Sentences with the Hearts
- Word Wall Bingo (Using hearts as chips)

Happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow everyone!


P.S. My kiddos are totally getting these tomorrow!! Bless The TeacherWife!! They’re going to flip with excitement (Plus they were totally last minute friendly!)!!

LOVE the TeacherWife's idea. I did the same thing but instead of glow sticks I purchased light up hearts that blink from Oriental Trading. I know my students are going to flip when I give them out. Happy Valentines Lisa & Beth!! :)

I'm doing the glow sticks too!! I had a different idea but I couldn't find the stuff!! I know my students will lose it when they see the glue sticks, so maybe it was for the best!! :) Thanks for the conversation heart activities too.

Marvelous Multiagers!

THANKS FOR THE FREEBIE! I had my daughter make the glowstick valentine as her giveaway for her firstgrade friends. Being that she's 6, most of her sticks were a little glowy by the time she left the house this morning (oops - I cracked another one). Oh well, can't be perfect. It was still super cute. Hope the class likes it. Hopefully her teacher isn't a blog stalker and didn't do the same thing!

I did the glow sticks too! Except some of them got cut into squares because I ran out of time during specials. I am such a procrastinator. =)
