A Valentine Freebie
I’ve been out of my classroom from Tuesday-Friday last week, so I’m behind on getting some things to share with you, so I thought I would give you a freebie instead. 🙂
First I want to show you a new product I’ve added to my Teachers Pay Teachers store:
I created a half sheet book for the -at family. The children “read” the sentences and then using the last page, the children cut out and glue in the correct beginning sound. They then can practice writing all the -at words they completed in the book.
What other word families would you like to see? I plan to make more of these, but I need to know which one’s you’d like> 🙂
Okay, now for the freebie. 🙂
This is a quick Valentine themed subtraction freebie. I took the “Way up high in the apple tree” poem and changed it up a bit to fit for Valentine’s day. You can get it by clicking here. I’ve also included the “Way up high in the apple tree” poem in addition to the Valentine’s poem. 🙂
Dollar Tree Finds/Target Dollar Spot
You know how I love the Dollar Store and Target’s Dollar Spot! (Who doesn’t??). I found these great table scatter hearts at the Dollar Tree along with the glittery hearts. I’m going to use them along with my I Love Math! pack to pattern and compose numbers on the ten frames.
The hearts are thick plastic and there are 60 or so in each pack, plenty enough to split them up for at least two different activities. I put them in one of my old Olive Garden plastic containers (LOVE them!!) and the kids will be able to pick out the hearts they need. 🙂
I can also use the glitter hearts with the pack and I like that they can use either type of hearts. 🙂
I also found these cute conversation hearts in the Dollar Spot at Target. Sorry that the picture is sideways. 🙂
I put a patterning activity in my I Love Math pack as well and these will be great! They are stickers, so I think I might just not say anything to my kids about that and see what happens, but I might also mount them on paper and cut them out. 🙂 100 hearts are PLENTY for a few kiddos to pattern with and to work on my “How Many More to 10?” game. I might go get some more of these so we can decorate our Valentine’s Day bags. 🙂
What else could you use these cute hearts for?
