I LOVE celebrating Valentine’s Day in the classroom. Even though February is a short month, it can feel quite long! Today I want to show you some of my favorite ideas and goodies from Oriental Trading to make your February awesome!
My kids are OBSESSED with our new Valentine Spinner! I set it up while my kiddos were at specials one day, and they came back and had all sorts of questions! I left them hanging for a few days before I finally one friend give it a big spin.
We have a jar of gems (drops in the bucket) that we use as a whole class incentive. Many times I’ll just call on a friend to go put a certain number of drops in the bucket, but now… we SPIN THE WHEEL to figure out how many drops to put in the bucket! We go all out with drum rolls and cheering — the kids LOVE it! I’m thinking of making it into a math center, too. The possibilities are endless!
I’m also excited to make these adorable Owl Valentine Card Holders! They come in easy, sticker foam kits for the kids to put together. I think they’re perfect for 1st-3rd graders! Oriental Trading also has a ton of other card holders besides owls like sharks and unicorns and puppies! I mean… HOW CUTE!?!?! You can find even more crafts here!
My final set of goodies I received are these adorable Valentine ID badge holders! I got enough for each of my kiddos to have one, and I think I’m going to make a little card to put in them that says, “My teachers loves me!” or something equally as cute. Who knows?! There are so many possibilities!
