Have students choose 1 of 6 different Olympic Venn diagrams to compare and contrast something about the Olympics.
Run off the heart pattern on a variety of pastel colors of construction paper, or for more pizzazz, print it off on patterned scrapbook paper that has a plain flip side. Students cut out their heart and then fold it on the dashed lines, creating an envelope! Encourage students to write something inside, or give them a poem or writing prompt. I've included a page of suggestions.
You can simply have children cut on the bold line of their folded paper (they will be amazed to see they have created a whole heart when they unfold it) or you can have children cut the heart and "scrap" paper in half and glue them to another sheet of paper to make a positive-negative reverse piece of art.
Print; laminate and trim then use them in your pocket chart as a whole group activity. Choose a student, to use a dry erase marker to fix a card. They circle the letters that should be capitalized and add end punctuation.
Packet includes 3 heart-shaped Venn diagrams: 1 for Valentine's Day, another plain to compare and contrast whatever, plus a Venn Friend diagram to use for Martin Luther King Day or a back-to-school activity.
Make writing a bit more fun with these 3D hearts, featuring three different writing prompts. Packet includes 15 writing prompts and heart pattern + sample photographs.
Now that students have experienced most of the major holidays, have them choose a Venn diagram that compares Valentine's Day with another holiday. There are 12 different Venn holiday diagrams in the packet, plus a blank one for them to fill in.
Five days before you celebrate your 100th day of school, have students keep a journal of how they spend their time. Do it for 4 days and 4 hours for a total of 100 hours.
