Full of Love

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! 
You can get the pattern for the hats here in Gladys' Raining Hearts pack :)
Is it me or do the kids act crazier at this holiday than any other? It has been wild in our class! We have managed to get some fun learning done though.
As promised, here are some pictures of what we've been doing in math...

We worked on decomposing the number 10 by rolling a number, putting that many hearts on our ten frame then writing the equation using the number we rolled and how many more would make 10.
We also worked on subtraction with this cute activity in which we "mailed" valentines to a friend and sang a cute song {that the kids loved!} then figured out how many we had left.
 We also worked on decomposing teen numbers into ten and a number more with candy hearts {we ran out, so we drew our group of ten hearts on the top}
All of these math activities can be found in my super sweet friend/teammate Deeanna's pack here.

We've also been doing some fun things in language arts...

We read Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch and talked about how special Mr. Hatch felt when he received the special package and also at the end when his neighbors surprised him. Then, we each made a surprise valentine for a special person in our school and went to deliver them.
You can get this writing paper here on google docs

Surprising Mrs. Ruthie who works in our office

Surprising our next door neighbor and speech teacher, Mrs. Flowers
The kids went nuts over this! It was so cute to see them get so excited to give their valentine! It was also really nice to see the different people all around our school feel appreicated and remembered. Definitely a good lesson for the kids!
We also talked about nouns this week and made this quick chart. I do this every year because I think it really helps us learn that nouns are people, places, and things once we talk about what we love. We also did a writing activity with this that you can get on google docs here {I forgot to get a picture!}.

Last, we quickly read There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose today and made our group and individual sequencing charts. The kids get so excited when we read a new sequencing book!
You can get this here in my new sequencing pack. 

That's it guys! I am worn out and am going home to this little sweetie to spend our first Valentine's together.
