Happy Valentine’s Week! I wish I had some exciting things to share with y’all this week but it has been a pretty normal, routine week in the classroom but a super busy week for me outside of school. So, here is just a quick glimpse of my not-so-exciting week.

We did these Valentine Centers this week. On the left, students had to circle if the word on the card was a month or a year. On the right, students had to read the card and answer the comprehension question.


Students had to read and pick the correct word to go in the blank- the words had inflectional endings

All three of these are in my Love to Learn Valentine’s Pack

Sickness and 4H competitions had 7 of my kids out one day this week. So, we took it easy that afternoon and made these heart caterpillars. I just put a basket of hearts and other supplies they needed in the middle of the floor and they did these by themselves. Super simple but they had fun!

This is seriously one of my FAVORITE products I have made. It is a couple of years old but I pull it out several times a year and we a lot. I used it as an early finisher activity during center time this week.

And, I don’t know HOW we have managed to skip a whole week without using pocket charts but we did not use them at all last week. So, this week they had to be squeezed in with some math counting cards. I also used these as an early finisher activity too.

These are in my Valentine’s Centers Unit.

Our class Valentine party is this afternoon. I swore whatever I was going to do was going to be simple. I saw lots of cute ideas on Pinterest and other places but I picked these heart shaped ring pops up 6/$1.00 and printed some simple cards and I just stapled them to each card.

My students will bring so much for each other that I knew they did not need much. And, I literally went to the store, printed the cards and put them together in about 20 minutes.


Have a great weekend! Happy Valentine’s Day too!!
