Hope you all had a great week! I’m linking up with the fab Doodle Bugs Teaching for
Five for Friday (Saturday edition 🙂 )
If you follow me on instagram you may have already seen some of these! If not then you can find me here!
1. Class t-shirts!
I’ve arranged to get class t-shirts for the past two years
and we are in the process of getting them made again this year! I happen to have a kiddo in my class whose parents make t-shirts, so they are doing them for us this year! So excited to see how they turn out! My students all draw a self-portrait to go on the shirt. They always like drawing my picture, so I let them draw me if they would like, and then the class votes on one of the drawings to go on the t-shirt! Here’s some of the beautiful portraits my kiddos drew of me this year!
2. Mr. Hatch Cause and Effect
This fabulous idea came from Laura Candler. You can get her freebie here!
She has recording sheets in the freebie, but we used construction paper hearts for recording the causes and effects from the story Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch instead!
3. Valentine’s Day Treats!
I couldn’t find the heart shaped ice trays that I used last year for valentine treats for my students, so I turned to pinterest! I found this idea from A Night Owl Blog. I couldn’t find graham gold fish though, so I used mini graham crackers instead!
Love how they turned out! I even made a few little mason jars filled with the goodies for the parents who arranged our classroom party and auction project! I wish I got pictures of those but I totally forgot!
4. I posted about our Love Poems for the Unloved earlier this week. It was a hit again this year!
5. Valentine boxes!
I had my students bring in a box from home to decorate to collect their valentines in! I picked up tons of fun supplies at Target and set up the whole back table with everything. They were super excited!
I always love to see how creative they turn out!
Hope you all had a great week!
Tomorrow I’m meeting up with my sweet friends Sandy & Kate!
Love those girls so much and can’t wait to see them again!!
Hope you are all enjoying your 3 day weekend!
Your class shirts are ADORBS! I love how you only have 16ish students. Do you work at a private or public school?
I love all of your Valentine's Day activities! I so wanted to try out your idea for the Love Poems, I even ordered the book on Amazon Prime but then we had 4 snow days. And, it just came today because of all of that snow and ice!! I'm so sad we didn't get to do it this year…but I may have to get it in somehow!!! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas!
