1-2-3 Come Do Some Valentine Activities With Me
Yesterday's "Let's Do Something With Those Valentines!" Math & Literacy activities, were such a huge it, that I decided to make a few more worksheets where students use their valentines. These have to do with measuring.
Because my kiddos rip through their valentine cards and are done in about 5 minutes, when I really wanted that activity to last longer, I designed these quick, easy and fun worksheets to extend my sanity-time on party day.
There are 2 worksheets children complete using their valentine cards. They are independent activities, as well as one where they partner up.
Choose just one worksheet, or print both back-to-back.
Children will enjoy playing with their valentines longer, as they practice a variety of non-standard units of measurement, while you grab a few stress-free moments to relax before the next activity.
Another "print & go" activity is the Valentines For Sale emergent reader, which practices a variety of standards.
Children read the simple sentences filled with 37 Dolch sight words, trace and write the color, number and coin words, color the valentine hearts the appropriate colors, then cut and glue the matching coins to the boxes.
This quick, easy and fun activity is perfect for party day.
Today's featured FREEBIE is "Lovie". She's a fish made from heart shapes. This craft is a simple and fun way to show small-medium-large and explain symmetry.
Use it as a valentine craft for party day and give children some Fishy crackers to "o-fish-cially" wish them a happy Valentine's Day.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
February is so packed full of special celebrations and themes that my mind's on hyper-drive. Wishing you a happy-go-lucky day.
