Monday, I had my Valentine’s Day party rescheduled from last Friday’s snow day. We also had ALL day’s lesson plans focusing on President’s Day, so we had quite a crazy day. Here are a few highlights from the day. There is nothing worse than having snow days mess up all of your January and February lesson plans. I wanted to share a few ideas from my Valentine’s Day party, regardless of how stressful it was!
Valentine’s Day Morning Surprise
As students walked in, they were greeted with a pink donut and a happy note from me! This adorable idea was from one of my 4th grade teacher friends. She made a little “donut know what I’d do without you” sign and let me use it. The kids were thrilled to do their morning work with a donut on their desk.
This is how my kiddos started their day. Walk-in for morning work donuts.

Now for Valentine’s Day Party Time….
My room mom went all out for my Valentine’s Day party. Her ideas were too cute. She had some cookies and Little Debby hearts. However, the hit of the party was her little robot juice boxes she made. The kids loved them.
They came with a box of Nerds, two Starburst, a chocolate heart, googly eyes, and pipe cleaners. She simply used hot glue to put them all together. The kids were thrilled.
We created some Valentine’s Day bags using little owl cutouts that I made real quick last year!
They exchanged their Valentine’s cards and snacked on their treats during our party. It was very low key and calm, since their schedule has been so scattered and off the last few weeks with all our snow days.
Aside from our Valentine’s Day Party this week, we also started a new comprehension activity. Something else we started brand new this week is our reading response interactive journals. I’m working on some guided reading/small group interactive pieces. Here is a peek of my kiddos testing them out. You can try them out for free, too if you sign up for my email list below.
