Ideas for Valentines Day

| No comment
Today on WWW Wednesday we will be taking a very short trip around the Internet.... to my own blog!

Last year I posted about our Valentine's Day activities.  As it turns out, there isn't much different on the agenda this year.  

The first post shows our Valentine count down chain as well as some of seasonal books we read this time of year.  We are doing both again this year.

The second post shows some of the Valentine related work on the shelves in the classroom.  This included a heart counting activity and a stickering work.  My favorite was the draw and cut your own heart tray.  I was amazed at how easy it was for the kids to follow the steps.  They were immensely proud of the results.

The final post details our activity from the day itself.  We made heart shaped salt dough ornaments.  My favorite activity was using paint and a laminated heart to tell the story of Jesus.  Elora still talks about it nearly a year later.  I will introduce it again this year.  However, this time I intend to leave it in the classroom for a few weeks.

There is one addition this year.  I found these adorable mailboxes at the store a few weeks ago.

My husband and I take turns writing special notes to each of the children.  They have greatly enjoyed reading their mail each day.  It has also been a wonderful opportunity for us to focus on the many lovely qualities our children posses.  I intend to save and date the notes.

What special activities or traditions do you have for Valentine's Day?
