Valentine's Day!!!

Where has this month gone!?  I am gearing up for Valentine's Day by getting everything ready!  I have my students' gifts ready and I've printed and laminated all of my Valentine's Day center activities.

This year, I picked up a few goodies from the dollar store, Michael's, and Target and put together treat bags. How cute are the little mustache and lips lollipop accessories!?  My kids will love them!

I also made my firsties these water bottles!  They are going to enjoy them during our party!  I am a water freak, so these are only appropriate!  I made some editable tags in case you'd like to make some for your classroom!  Click here to snag a set for free!

My centers are prepped and ready to go!  I photographed a few of my favorites to share with you!

1.   Sweet Spin-Students spin, tally, answer questions, and graph!  Simple enough!

2.  Number Patterns-This is such a tricky concept; to practice, students match the rule with the number pattern.  This is great practice and I always include a number pattern activity in my weekly Math tubs.  

 3.  Sentence Scramble-Always an important skill for emergent readers and writers!  

4.  Broken-This is a sight word game where all cards are placed in a bag and students draw a card, read it, and say it aloud in a sentence.  If they get a "broken" card, all their cards go back into the bag!  The anticipation always kills the kids!  This activity comes with an optional recording sheet. 

5.  Subtraction Facts-Use these to play races, or take turns drawing a card and solving the facts!  A little rote drill never hurt 'nobody!  

6.  Blend Sort-Sort the blends by r-blends or l-blends.  Write them on the provided recording sheet and use some in sentences. 

7.  Number Bonds-Match the number bond to it's missing addend.  

All the activities and lots more are included in my "Be Mine, Valentine" center pack.  I hope you will take a look!

These are some great valentine activities. I think the water bottles are perfect... so much better than having parents send in sugary drinks to go along with all the sugary treats. Talk about hyper!
