I let my students do a family project at home to make their Valentine mailboxes. I have to say I was very impressed at the time and effort my parents put into helping make these boxes for their children. They were so creative!
This friend made a robot...
This one had some crazy stuff coming out of the top of it...
This one was made with Duct tape...and mom wrote a sweet note inside!
The friend that made this one kept staring at it. I asked her why she kept staring at it and she said, "Because it's just SO CUTE!" I would agree.
We've also been working on some of the activities from my Valentine literacy pack. We really needed to practice contractions!
I also made this activity during my snow days.
I got the idea from Malia who writes the blog Playdough to Plato.
I wanted an activity that practices words with bonus letters and thought this was cute, easy and hands on. I grabbed a couple of wood cubes from Michael's and covered the stickers in Mod Podge. Now you're probably thinking, why didn't she just use a permanent marker? Well, I started with that and ended up with this...
So not cute, and the marker bled into the wood.
I made a recording sheet to go with this activity (until it has lost it's luster and I gotta try something else.)

Now that Valentine's is over I'm ready for spring - how bout you?
