February Fun TeachMagically
 We love making 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! 

We love card exchanges!  Yes, we do a card exchange on Valentine's Day!  It is a great way to work on writing names!  I am always amazed at the number of students that want to try and spell the names of friends!

We love math!  We are working on number sense by doing number talks but then we record if the shape is on our heart!

It really helps with focus when there is a task to do!  We will keep practicing this so the students will be independent on Valentine's Day! Oh Yeah! (I love the hearts on the wings of the birds!)
