Valentine Freebies!

A double post today...wow wee!!!  I just wanted to post a couple freebies for valentines day!  The first one is a graphing activity.  Have your lil' sweeties sort their valentine cards according to categories.  They will then use the recording sheet to graph and analyze their "data"!  The second is an activity you can do using those cute lil' conversation heart candies.  Pair your kiddos up and have each of them choose a conversation heart.  They will write a sentence to their partner using what is written on their heart.  Have them write a sentence that is a question.  I have my darlin's glue their heart into their sentence to make it a little more fun.  Then, they will switch papers with their "valentine" {partner} and have them answer their question.  I have my kiddo's write "fat" questions--meaning they can't be questions that can be answered with a yes or no.  Click one of the pics below to grab yourself a copy from my Teacher's Notebook store!
The graphing activity is a freebie from my Valentine Unit.  Check out the full unit for more "sweet" resources!!

Look how cute our bookmarks turned out!!  These will be given to our sweet friends at our local children's hospital along with a book.  This is part of our service learning project for this year {these are also included in my unit}!!
Have a great weekend sweet friends!!
