Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's day! I know this is late, but maybe you'll find something you can use next year...
Valentine's Day Crafts
The idea for these cute bees came from A Cupcake for the Teacher. She has a great template HERE.

Math & Literacy Centers
Here are just a few of our literacy and math stations...
Rainbow Write - Students spin the spinners and write the words using the correct colors.
How Many Heartbeats? - Students sort the pictures by number of syllables, then stamp or color the hearts on the recording sheet.
Sounds of My Heart - Students pick an object out of a container, then either stamp or color the beginning/ending sounds.
Break My Heart - Students break open the hearts and build sight words.
Sweet Sight Words - Students pick a heart, read the word, and write it in the correct column based on how many letters are in the word.
Write the Room - Students hunt around the room for pictures/words and write them in the boxes.
Sweet Sums of Five/Ten - Students toss a cup of two-color counters, then fill in the five/ten frame and record their work with a drawing and equation.
Counting by Tens - Students sequence the cards by tens, then cut and paste.
Lovin' Addition - Students roll the dice and use counters to add. Then they record their equations.
Add & Cover - Students roll the dice and cover the numeral on their game board. First to fill their board wins!
Connect Four - In this game, students roll the cube, count the items, and trace the number. First to get four in a row wins!
Candy Heart Graphing - Students sort and graph candy hearts.
Measure Your Heart Out - Students measure the treats with cubes or hearts.
More or Less - Each partner chooses a card, then they spin the spinner to see who wins the cards (more or less). The player with the most cards at the end wins. You could also use these cards to play Concentration or Go Fish.
Pretty Patterns - Students make patterns with hearts, then color them on the recording sheet.
All these activities and more are included in my February Centers Pack!
