Hey everyone! This month, the Weekend Warriors are bringing you some super sweet Valentine's Day ideas!
Every year around this time, I give my students' grown ups homework. The kids are SO excited to take the homework home for someone else :)
Their assignment? Make their kiddo a valentine. I love how this project brings home to school. I give them a giant heart cut out of tagboard, and the rest is up to them. I encourage them to decorate, write messages, use pictures, etc. The grown ups always rise to the occasion!
I don't have many examples to share because mine are due back next week, but here are a few of the ones that came back early. I've covered up the kids' photos, so trust me, they're so much cuter in person!!
|This was a first for me: this family used magazine clippings! Very cool, just like their child :)|
You should see the smiles my students have when they see their hearts! I hang them up above each student's coat hook in the hallway. They're such a happy reminder of the kids and families we teachers are entrusted with every day. I'll update this post next week once I get them all back and hang them up :)
I've had quite a few students and parents tell me that they still have the heart years after they've left second grade. This is truly a homework "assignment" that everyone LOVES!
