February 14th is quickly approaching. I have been scouring the web and found some fun things to try in my classroom.  I figured I would share some things that I found along with some of my regular activities for any other last minute planners out there.



Crafts
I fell in love with this quick paper craft from Crafty Morning.  I am a sucker for dogs, so I had to check it out!  You can find this craft and many others here.

Next, I found this perfect pizza Valentine craft from Crystal at Surviving a Teacher's Salary.  Who doesn't love pizza? 

We just finished a unit on fractions and I wove pizza throughout the unit.  I may have them create a whole pizza with a slice missing to review some fraction concepts.  I think my students would love this!

I came across this image while searching for crafts.  To see the original post click here.
It was originally intended to be used as a Mother's Day card.  But, as soon as I saw it, I thought about the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio.  I am reading it with my class right now and want to use this idea to create a Valentine's Day card with a kindness message.

STEM Activities
I love using holiday themed STEM activities in the classroom.  My class will complete a STEM project next week.  I have four Valentine's Day themed challenges all ready to go.
The challenge cards will be placed in a hat and each group will choose one to complete.  I can't wait to see how they solve the problems.

Math Activities
Math activities with a holiday theme are fun, too! There are a bunch out there!  I created a few to fit concepts that needed review in my classroom.  We are working on decimal concepts so this decimal matching game will be perfect.
