Valentine's Day is a wonderful time to celebrate friendships! We had an action packed week! Check it out!
Earlier this week, we spent time with our Grade 3 buddies making Love Monster Mail Bags! Aren't they creative and unique?
We revisited a comprehension strategy where we connect the story to our own experiences, called "text to self connections". We read Will You Be My Valenswine?, where a piggy feels as though nobody loves him ... until he realizes his mama adores him! We recalled a time we felt loved and added a few piggy details!
Not only did Valentine's Day give us the chance to sneak in some writing, but it was also a chance to sharpen our math skills, too! We played a BINGO game that gave us practice identifying and naming numbers to 100!
We had a blast delivering our cards to each other!
We finished the day enjoying the friendships we've made by playing Valentine's Minute To Win It!
The first challenge was Heart Stack! How many candy conversation hearts can you stack in a minute?
The next challenge? Lava Heart! Using only two hearts to stand on, can you make it across the room? Don't fall in the lava!
The final challenge was Broken Hearts. Students passed a tissue paper heart using clothespins! Careful, don't tear it!
Love Monster Mailbags are from The Teacher Wife.
Our Valentine's Minute To Win It was inspired by Mrs. Schmelzer's First Grade.
