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!
