A Sweet Peek at My Week!

Happy Monday Friends!
Just thought I'd share some freebies with you today!
I put together this little hodge-podge Valentine's Day collection to use this week with my first graders.
Click here or on the image below to download.  

 The following color version of this 2-Dimensional card is for my teacher example to guide the kids through the cutting and bradding process!  These will end up being the PARENT cards to send  home on Friday.

 I also made these two foldable cards (in color) for last minute cards to siblings or relatives.

If time allows, I also hope to add in a "Secret Valentine" this week!  I think that would be a great way for the kids to write some lovely and random Acts of Kindness to their friends!

We are making our Valentine's Day LOVE POTION on Friday!  
Now my recipe for LOVE POTION is much like a Shirley Temple.
A classic Shirley Temple is made with Ginger Ale and a garnish of lime or citrus.

I like mine made with grenadine syrup and Sprite instead!
Much sweeter and looks fabulous!
Mixing Directions:
Distribute a straw and clear plastic cup along with a can of soda to each student.
(Be sure to have the class make their Love Potion Predictions BEFORE starting!)
If you are making the heart-shaped ice cubes, I would suggest putting the ice cubes in first.
The kids will fill their cups 3/4 full with Sprite.

Then I will come around and add a "splash" of "love potion" (aka: grenadine) to their cups. This is always the fun part to watch the Sprite turn red!   Finally, top it off with maraschino cherries and  your Valentine's Day LOVE POTION is complete!  Drink and feel the bubbly potion fill your heart with love!
You could even add more toppings like whipped cream or sherbet ice cream!

In this free download, there is also copies of the parent communications I used this year for our Valentine's Day festivities!

Amazon just delivered a few Valentine's Day read alouds that are sure to make us laugh AND tug on the heartstrings!  Here's a peek at my reading collection this week-
