Although Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, that doesn’t mean it can’t still be celebrated in your classroom on the days leading up to it. Whether it be by hosting a party where students travel around the room with hand written cards for one another or integrating Valentine’s Day themes into the core subjects that you teach, there are a variety of ways that you can spread some love and holiday cheer around your classroom. With help from Babble and Scholastic, we’ve put together a few ideas to inspire you below –
Bulletin Board of Hearts – If you change up your bulletin boards for each holiday or season, consider decorating yours this month with red and pink construction paper. Then, provide each student with one heart cut out and have them either write their name in the middle or one fact pertaining to one of the topics you are currently teaching.
Math Mates – Depending on the mathematical skills you are teaching, provide half of your students with an equation and the other half with an answer. Then, have them walk around the room to try and find their perfect match!
Handprint Heart – Is art one of your students’ strengths? If so, provide students with one construction paper heart and have them either trace their hand in the middle or use paint to make the perfect handprint!
