Happy Valentine’s Day WEEK!
What a great week to focus on LOVE!
I think this might be my classroom’s favorite poem! Perhaps because it is downright silly!
You can find all of my original poems HERE.

These Read, Trace, Glue, and Draw activities are what we typically used as our “morning work.” They are completed quickly and my students always seem to love them. They are the perfect opportunity to discuss, practice, and reinforce:
Concepts about print
Using for first sound to figure out unknown words
Using the picture to figure out unknown words
Making sure your picture and text match
Drawing with details to make your meaning known
You can see the BUNDLE HERE. (By the way… I want to add a few more themes to the ENDLESS BUNDLE. I am taking suggestions. If you have one, will you leave a comment?)
Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink is a fun book to use this week.
We practice our comprehension strategies and interactive writing by:
Here is another book that is too cute for this week!
It was in the Scholastic See Saw book order, so it is included in our Listen Up! Listening Station units for February.
We always had a Valentine’s Day party on the last day of the week. This was a fun game we played. The students used suction to move the conversation hearts to a bucket. It was hilarious!
You can find more February Themed ideas on my Pinterest Board HERE.
On final thing…
This week I will be sending out my newsletter that will include a free activity. You will not want to miss this! How do you get it? It is easy and there are 2 ways.
1. Look for this bar at the top of my blog. Bada Bing, Bada Boom… you are done. It will come to your inbox when it is done.
2. Look in your TpT “Inbox.” First you need to be sure you follow me. That is pretty easy. If you are not sure if you follow me already, just click on this picture below and you can double check.
THEN, I will put your free file in your TpT inbox! You can see that January’s is already in there. One I publish February’s free fill the January link will be broken and you will not be able to get it, so you may want to check it now.
Don’t worry… if you miss February’s free file, I will have another one in March!
