Here are some pictures from our LOTS OF LOVE PARTY.  What a lovely time!

After reading this book the students gave their guest a valentine.  I forgot to take a picture of the valentine, but it accompanies the book.  It was a rabbit made out of hearts.  It was adorable!
Making words from the word VALENTINES.

Decorating heart shaped cakes together.

Time to share the sweet treat with our guest!
Pocket chart to review number words and making addition number sentences.

This pocket chart introduces the students to using commas.

Sharing the love is not over in our class!  We will continue sending valentines to our friends in the classroom.  After everyone receives a valentine from all their classroom buddies, we will begin writing notes to each other.  The leader of the day distributes the notes.  This activity is great for handwriting practice, writing sentences, reading, and of course encourages being kind to one another.  I always begin this activity after Valentine's Day and it continues to the end of the school year.  It's a classroom favorite!

Here are some of the valentines we are sending to our friends.  These came from Making Learning Fun.  Sorry about the picture...still having trouble rotating pictures taken from my iphone.
Here are some of my students' writing responses to our LOTS OF LOVE party.  We brainstorm and list words we might use in our LOTS OF LOVE writing that can't be found using our resources (alphabet chart, vowel chart, sounds chart, word wall).  They did an awesome job!

Here's a freebie you can use for next year!
