I have not had as much time to blog this week because it was my birthday. I have had a fabulous week overall, which you can read about at my new personal blog called Balancing the Backpack. I am really trying to work on balance this year, which includes eating better, exercising more, and trying to approach each day with gratitude and joy.
I really want to change things up a little bit this week with my students and do some fun stuff for Valentines. I would really like to do some poetry as well. I did not have as much time this weekend as I wanted to work on some Poetry activities or my Fractured Fairy Tale Unit. I am hoping to have some more time tomorrow night. In the meantime, I made some TpT purchases.
I purchased Jennifer Findley's Valentine's Math centers. All of her stuff is fabulous.
I also purchased her Valentine's Reading Skills pack. I am going to use this, as well as hopefully some poetry stuff I hope to make.
Here is a link to some funny love/Valentine's poems on Giggle Poetry you could use this week with your students.
Here is a cute poem by Kenn Nesbitt called "Lunchbox Love Note" that I will read with my students this week. We will use it to review over the structure of a poem.
I will probably use some activities from Laura Candler's February packet. I have used her Friendship Cinquain before so I will probably use that as one of our poems this week.
I still need to figure out a gift for my students for Valentine's Day. There are so many cute ideas on Pinterest. I am leaning toward this one with a pen or pencil. I may also bring some cookies because they were disappointed I did not bring a treat to share with them on my birthday.
What have you decided to give your students for Valentine's Day?
