Do you need a few fun ideas for the month of February? 

I love doing many fun things all about hearts and love this entire month! I love incorporating many different skill sets into all lessons so there are many more skills than the ones stated!!

Make Paper 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!

It is perfect to send home to families to help with scissor skills.

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! 

Valentine Card Giveaway  

Yes, we do a card exchange on Valentine’s Day!  It is a great way to work on writing names!  Send a not home with names and let the fun begin. I am always amazed at the number of students that want to try and spell the names of friends!

Math Talks  

We are working on number sense by doing number talks but then we record if the shape is on our heart! The talking is the most important!

  The coloring within the lines is perfect fine motor work! The cute little birds, makes it fun and engaging! (I love the hearts on the wings of the birds!)
