Can y'all believe it's almost already Valentine's Day? Does it seem someone pressed fast forward on February? Or nah? Well...that's what it feels like to me.
Since Valentine's Day is just a few short days away, I wanted to share a writing activity & a printable treat tag that you might be able to put to use in your classroom this coming week.
First up, let's talk tags. I absolutely LOVE Valentine's Day and love gifting different treats to students, co-workers, friends, and family. There's just something my Kindergarten heart loves about the holiday (as commercial as it may be). I was at Target earlier this week and ran across these tasty little hearts.
I'm never one to turn down candy....especially candy of the marshmallow variety...so I picked up a few packages to hoard here and enjoy (alone) at home. Then I remembered my pants still aren't buttoning up very easily because of all the holiday eating I enjoyed November-December, so I figured these marshmallow bites would be better served in a treat for my boys and all their friends.
For this little treat, you'll need 1 graham cracker, 1 Valentine Peep, 2-3 pieces of Dove Milk Chocolate, and a clear cellophane baggie. Tie it up with cute ribbon or twine and attach the gift tag. Done and done! Great little treat for your students or something to send with your own kids to school, too! I went ahead and included gift tags for both! Just click the pic to download.
A few years ago I blogged about these Valentine treats for the classroom. Check them out HERE.
Now let's talk about writing. I always love celebrating friendship the week of Valentine's Day. I'm sure many of you do, too. Here's a writing craftivity that celebrates friendship and is perfect to implement any time in February....or any other time as well! Of course, it would be even better if this were a leap year, but I'll roll with it anyway. Haha!!
