The Beginning of a Heartfelt Valentine's Week

Every year, at the time of Valentine's Day, I always run out of time to involve my students in all of the activities I have in my files. So... this year, we started early! Our math lesson included a review of data analysis and graphing with a heart glyph. Look at these beautiful glyphs that my sweet second graders created!

The action leading up to the final product had the children illustrating, labeling, and then tallying and graphing one of the four features on the glyph. 

If you like what you see, you can preview this file on TPT. There are two versions; one for grades K-1 and one for grade 2.

We also wrote letters and valentines to a classmate who moved to England! How exciting for his family! We are communicating by email and snail mail. It's always fun to get his letters; the children love to look at the stamps and postage markings. Our letters will be arriving just in time for Valentine's Day (hopefully)! 

Continuing with our valentine-infused day (complete with CCSS correlations!), we made valentines for the son of a coworker. Hunter (#hunterstrong on Twitter) suffered a spinal cord injury during a high school wrestling match back in December. He's making progress while in a rehab clinic, and we wanted to cheer him up with a pile of valentine letters. These cute frog valentine graphics are the freebie of the week from Scrappin Doodles if you're on the mailing list. If you aren't, sign up, here!

I hope your Valentine's Week is filled with love and laughter!
