Valentine’s Day in K

Slide1 (1)

LOVE is in the air this February! I’m so excited to let you know about the group of Teacher Authors who created a great Giveaway just for YOU!  Teachers love sharing, so let me share some of the ways we celebrate Valentine’s Day in Kindergarten.

My kids love candy (I know… not manyValentine's Day Candy Heart Estimation who don’t love it!) So I ask parents to donate conversational hearts to the class.  Students get to sort them by color, graph them, and estimate how many hearts will fill up the heart graphic. (This is a FREEBIE, you can find on TPT.) My students who are in high school now, tell me this was one of their favorite memories of my class on Valentine’s Day!

Students play I SPY Missing Letters games, solve valentine themed word problems, make mini books and crafts which can be found in my  Valentine’s Day CRAFTS and PRINTABLES.  We make hats and fun glasses to wear all day, so everyone know it’s Valentine’s Day in our classroom!  Valentine's Day cover

Of course, a Valentine’s Day celebration would not be complete without passing out Valentine cards!  I ask parents to send in a decorated Valentine’s Day shoe box with student’s names clearly on the box to help students pass out their valentine cards. This is a great writing activity for parents to to with their children too by sending home a list of first name, so students can address the envelopes.  This is the other favorite activities my older students talk about! Some still have their box! So, now I have students write positive words to each student, so they can keep that in their box too.  This will hopefully make them aware of how special they were to others in kindergarten.  Hope you build some great memories with your students this year!  Join the Rafflecopter Giveaway below and hop on over to the next great post at Teach Magically!
