Valentine's Week Fun!

What a week!! We had a lot of things going on at school this week. We had a book fair, music program, and Valentine's Day Party. With all the things going on, we worked really hard and had a blast doing lots of activities all about LOVE! 

Monday

We practiced all of our strategies that we have learned for addition.
    

We practiced decomposing 10 with M&M's

We read 'The Biggest Valentine Ever' and completed a story map together.

We made the mouse valentine that Clayton and Desmond made in the story.
    

Tuesday
We practiced all of our strategies that we have learned for subtraction.
    

We practiced making CVC words.





We compared the valentine that Clayton & Desmond made on their own from the story 'The Biggest Valentine Ever'


We wrote a valentine to someone that is special to us.
    


Then, we ALL worked together to make the BIGGEST valentine ever, just like the story 'The Biggest Valentine Ever'. We had so much fun! I loved hearing my kiddos talk about working together and how much fun they had.


    




Here it is!

Wednesday
We have been working a lot on addition and subtraction. We practiced combining both addition and subtraction and sorting them in a flip book.
    


We also completed an addition and subtraction true or false page.

We talked about the qualities of a good friend and placed them on a chart (forgot to take a picture!) Then, I put all of my students name in a basket. Each student picked out a name and wrote about that friend.
    

We read 'Froggy's First Kiss'. I stopped after Froggy made a valentine and had my students predict who they think he made his valentine for.



After I finished reading, they drew a picture and wrote who the valentine was actually made for.



Thursday
We practiced counting by 10's to 100!





We made an addition lady love bug.
        


    

We ate Hershey's hugs and kissed and decided which one we liked better. We made it into a pie graph.


We started talking and writing about different things that we
love. 
     


We made a class book! Each student wrote about what they love to do at school. We have it in our classroom library to enjoy reading!




    



Friday
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!
We made red noodle necklaces with hearts.
    



We played broken heart addition with M&M's
    

We had a blast with doing 'musical tables sentence unscramble'. I placed different words/sentences on each table. Students would walk around with their group and when the music stopped they had to stop at a table and unscramble the words to make a complete sentence. They recorded their sentences that they made.
    






    

We finished writing about different things that we love and turned it into a 3D writing craft.


    


    



We made different words using the letters in 'valentine'.
    

We played sight word bingo with a twist. Students were in charge of making their own bingo card before we started.



We made these cute bags from Jen's Kinder Kids to place our cards in.

I made my students these fun heart glasses out of pipe cleaners that I found on Pinterest. Click HERE to learn how to make them.


And we wore our kiss rings!! I found these on Pinterest too! Click HERE to get directions on how to make these. 



I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
