Spreading the Love

Spreading the Love

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner we have been focusing on put ups instead of put downs in 1st grade!  I love having a Valentine’s Day party with the kids.  We focus on writing letters to each other, completing a project with our family, and finding the good in each of us.  A few weeks ago I sent home a letter telling about our party and a project to complete at home.  Each child was asked to work with their parents to make a Valentine’s mailbox.  Here is a peek at a few of the mailboxes.  I love to add a home component to school units. 

Next we have been working on writing each child a Valentine at our writing center!  Students are able to use the paper they want and supplies!  They have really had a great time thinking of special things to say about each person.  I love how this week is a great reminder of how to fill each other’s buckets!

Here is a writing template freebie!
