Valentine's Day Week

So, Valentine's Day is my LEAST favorite day...and week. At school, at home, in the stores...haha. BUT, I don't make my kids suffer because of my dislike for it, so we carry on with our week as usual.

The card we make for our families is this "Some Bunny Loves You!" card rom Erica. It's so cute, comes with a cute poem, and it's super quick and simple.  You can grab it for free {HERE}.

Another thing we do for one of our days of math is {Candy Heart Math}.  This year, I got a little smart and made a "book" or "journal" for the activities.  My kids love when we make books for our themes, so I do this a LOT in my room. I give them a big piece of paper and they store all the activities in "folder" throughout the theme, and then when we finish, I staple the folder together and slap a cover on it and call it a book! They love it. I love it. So why not? right?

We started with sorting colors and making tally marks. I keep forgetting that this is a skill they need to practice ALL year long...oy!

Then they grouped their hearts into groups of ten so they could figure out how many hearts they have.

Then they filled in their bar graph.

(I have edited the file to include higher amount of boxes on the bar graph since most of our bar graphs had to add more boxes!)

Then it came time to analyze our data....

Then we did some addition... this girl was so excited when she came to this problem - Mrs. Ross, LOOK!! It's the Flip Flop rule!

And then we compared numbers! Whew!  Put it all together and call it a book!

Another fun activity we did was with {Love, Splat}.

We did a sequencing foldable - they love how they are hanging up!

And we did some self-connection writing...

and of course, finished it off with a cute Splat craft.

So how did I keep all the chocolate goodness away for the day???

With my {Chocolate Shakeology}! I made it a Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor JUST so I wouldn't eat all the chocolate that came my way that day.
