Valentine's Craftivity and Letter Writing

Wednesday, February 6, 2013
Love is in the air! And if you were in our classroom, you could feel it!

My students made the Remixed Hearts from my Bushel and a Peck Craftivity, singing the song the whole time.  Seriously, they were the cutest things- they loved the remix concept.  "I love you an iPad and an iPod, a table and a tomato" were just two of the renditions I heard this week. We're not done with all of our hearts, but I wanted to show you what our work in progress looks like.


 I made a community-building activity inspired by this activity from my friend Halle Across the Hall in 2nd Grade.  She has the cutest ideas and her products are always amazing, not to mention I am constantly in awe of her classroom management.  My students had asked me to write special Valentines, so I thought a Secret Valentine swap would be a great way to do it.  I created My Secret Valentine, which you can pick up at my TPT store.


Here's a look at what's included.  I'm really excited to teach my students about addressing and mailing a letter.  Some of them don't know their addresses and I'm almost certain that NONE of them have received a letter in the mail before, so we are going to do it right!  We'll send the letters from school to school, so hopefully they come back within one day. 



I think that's it for today! Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. That shrimp looks delicious. I am going to guess the ginger shrimp? Mainly because it looks fantastic. That Valentine's letter activity looks like a lot of fun!
