Valentine's Fun

I absolutely love Valentine's Day - it's probably my favorite holiday to celebrate at school. This year we made this adorable owl craftivity from A Modern Teacher. This is a photo of my teacher example on the whiteboard. The boys made owls with red hearts and bow ties - SO cute. 
Underneath the heart flap I stuck on their school picture. It made the cutest parent gift and several kids told me the next day that their parents just loved them.
Then we did Conversation Heart math after lunch. I've made several of these candy math packets and the kiddos love 'em. Next I'll be doing jelly bean math for Easter. ;)
and measuring with candy!
And I HAD to share a photo of this adorable hair style one of my firsties came to school with. Her mom made a heart braid AND a heart part all around it. Cutest thing ever!! <3
I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine's Day with their kiddos!

    1. Awe, thanks for finding me Kelley!
      And I cannot believe that - how can you hate Valentine's Day in the classroom?? Sure, they're on a bit of a sugar rush, but just eat some candy and you can join them. ;) haha
