I was thinking about doing a variation of this in the classroom for Valentines and came up with Valentine Countdown.
|Download the FREEBIE by clicking on the picture.|
Easy preparation directions:
1) Copy the three card pages.
2) Cut the cards horizontally so that each long card has an activity and graphic- side by side.
3) Fold the cards in half and glue them together. You now have double-sided cards.
4) Laminate the cards and put them in a hat or bucket.
The idea is to spend about 5-10 minutes at the end of the day (up until February 14th) enjoying a Valentine "treat" activity. Just pull a card from the bucket and enjoy a fun Valentine activity. Some of the activities cannot be finished in 5-10 minutes, but don't worry. You can use the state of play to help with dismissal. For example: "Everyone with both hands still in the circle may get your backpacks and line up."
The activities are fun and would also make for good Valentine party activities and games. Oh and did I mention that this 15 page fun pack is a freebie? Just click on the Valentine Countdown image to download the packet. I hope you and your students enjoy it!
