A few fun ideas for Valentine’s Day Month

I love doing many fun things all about hearts and love this entire month! I love incorporating many different skill sets into all lessons so there are many more skills than the ones stated!!

Make Valentine’s Day Paper Hearts 

We begin by talking about “line of symmetry’ and how it helps makes hearts!  Then we practice cutting folded paper to make hearts!  It makes it extra special to use “paper shapers” scissors!

Some students even tried to cut around the lined heart to make a double heart!  So fun!  The students are so excited and are talking about making their own cards now! 

Valentine’s Day  Card Giveaway  

Yes, we do a card exchange on Valentine’s Day!  It is a great way to work on writing names!  Send a not home with names and let the fun begin. I am always amazed at the number of students that want to try and spell the names of friends!

Valentine’s Day Math Talks  

We are working on number sense by doing number talks but then we record if the shape is on our heart! The talking is the most important!

You can also find no prep fun for an entire day at No Prep Valentine’s Day Worksheets that includes this poem.

Valentine’s Day Word Work 

We use hearts to segment and blend words! It is a must to help beginning readers work with words!  

These sheets focus on the changes of the phonemes (sounds) from word to word. This process really helps kiddos focus on the letters and sounds within the word so they become proficient at reading cvc words in and out of context! Check out why segmenting is so important for beginning readers.
