Valentine’s Day Literacy
We read The Day It Rained Hearts and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and do a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the two stories!
Another great Valentine’s Day read aloud is A Crankenstein Valentine!
After reading the story we retell using sequence words!
Students then draw their retelling! After they draw their pictures, they bring their work to me and retell the story for me!
And then we share what makes us cranky! And ya’ll! These always crack me up!
Valentine’s Day Sight Words
Valentine’s Day Math
We love to measure so we Measure Love using non-standard units!
Valentine’s Day Science And STEM
Another easy STEM idea is stacking candy hearts! You can also do this as a minute to win it game and see how many hearts we can stack in 1 minute!
Valentine’s Day Art Ideas
My favorite heart project is this marble painted heart! We use shaving cream and tempera paint! The students swirl the paint onto the heart and use a ruler to scrape off the excess. You’re left with these adorable hearts and one gigantic mess! (WHich I love…messy is better….)
These heart mosaics turn out so colorful. You can cut the squares ahead of time or you can make this a torn paper lesson and have students tear bits of paper to fill in their hearts.
We also use our hands and feet to make a LOVE poster!
We love torn paper art projects! I love the kids get necessary fine motor practice and the hearts all turn out so unique! For this project, I draw a heart on black construction paper and the students tear paper and fill in their heart!
And no celebration is complete without a silly hat! These hats are made with red Solo cups, some heart eyes, and funny legs. Then we staple a piece of elastic onto the bottom of the cup to make a strap!
Valentine’s Day Party Ideas
Of course, we make bags to collect our Valentine’s cards! Ya’ll know how much I believe in SIMPLE! Our bags are no different! We make super simple monster bags! No fancy boxes or mailboxes. Good ole paper bags and some fun monsters!
We’ve also made unicorn bags! Again, simple. Made by the kids.
Made simply with milk, ice cream, red food coloring, whipped cream, sprinkles & candy hearts! I just brought a blender from home to make these fun and yummy milkshakes!
We have also used decorate your own cookie kits and let me just say, that was the EASIEST And QUIETEST Valentine’s Day party EVER. Definitely doing that EVERY YEAR!
Give the kids a pair of socks and a pencil! Super simple and cheap and FUN!
