Valentine's Day Fun!

Don't cha just love Valentine's Day? We had an AMAZING day! We began our day with Clue #1 and the Sweetheart Snatcher by The Inspired Apple. Oh.My.Goodness. This was such a fun activity. You should really check it out! It is an activity that we will use year after year...It's that good! Truly.

We also passed out our Valentines. This year our school is out of laminate.. :(
So, we had to adjust our "tried and true" Valentine holders. I found this cutie from The First Grade Parade! It reminded me of a "Valentine Pal" that we have made for years, so it was perfect. Here's our little version...

Valentines Holder--Our "Valentine Pal"

Our little ones LOVED walking out with these. Their Valentine Pal was filled with Valentines and lots and lots of yummy goodies! 

We added my Be Mine Games and Activities to our centers. The games include Letters and Sounds, Sight (High Frequency) Words, CVC and Nonsense Words, and Number Recognition. We are able to use these games and differentiate our instruction for each group, depending on their level.

 I have also included a graphing activity using Hugs and Kisses to this Unit. What a hit! I have done this graphing activity for the last few years. It sure was fun and yummy!

I created two different pictures for the graph to choose from...I teach morning Kindergarten and my partner teacher teaches the afternoon class. Check out the results for both classes.

It's actually pretty funny to look at the total number of kids that partcipated in the graphing activity because it doesn't represent our true numbers. We actually have small classes this year at 25 each. A lot of our little ones have been sick lately. :(

After tasting the Hugs and Kisses and completing a class graph, we recorded the results.
