Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! I must say that I wasn’t quite prepared to celebrate on a Tuesday. PTL that when I walked in the door from working out yesterday my sweet sweet Mr. Hubby had already started making my cupcakes and chocolate-covered oreos. I owe him BIG time for that! I don’t think I could have got it all done otherwise.
I arrived at school today with no V-Day cards or gifts for my kiddos, and I felt really bad about that. So, I seriously had to whip something up within NO time.
I made little notepads and gave them a freshly sharpened pencil. They LOVED it, even though they were last minute and VERY imperfect.
I just simply cut card stock and white paper into fourths, grab a bundle and stapled them together. Then, I stuck a label on the front that says, “A penny for my thoughts _____’s Notepad.” I hot glued some foam pieces and a penny on top. So simple, not the cutest thing ever, and probably will never make them again, ha!
Here are some other things we did today…
We just started fractions yesterday, but I still wanted to do a little spin on our fraction hats from last year. Seriously, so simple… they just cut hearts out of different colors of paper, and then wrote their fractions on their hats.
The kids were SO excited to read their pen pal letters from Mrs. King’s class (2nd Grade Shenanigans). Her class made cute postcards this time, which were completely adorable! We love opening our mail!
Here’s a little peek of some of our Valentine’s bags. They ended up being absolutely PERFECT!
And, we also played Valentine BINGO at our party… thanks to the Teacher Wife, once again!

Directed Drawing Tip: Have students draw on half sheets of paper, index cards, or something similar. Then they don’t take up quite as much space. In this pic, my students worked together to retell the story, then we added both of their drawings to the display!
