Valentine's Freebie & A Flash Giveaway!

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
Happy Sunday night everyone!  (Or it could be Monday morning when you're reading this, if you're already in bed...)  I, however, am up to my usual frantic Sunday evening extravaganza, exacerbated by the fact that I spent A LOT of time making my own Valentine's center stuff instead of actually planning or doing my report cards... yikes!  So I may be MIA the rest of this week.  And I may not get to posting what we did for Simple Tools & Machines last week!

Anyways, I'm super excited about the stuff I made and I can't wait to share it with you in a fun flash giveaway!  :)  The rules are simple:

Aaaaand...

  5. Hi Jess, we also decorate Valentine boxes but we also do a secret Valentine exchange. I send home a note to the parents with whom it is that the child must create a super cute homemade Valentine for and that child brings the Valentine to school the day before the party (just in case someone forgets and I can send a reminder home). Then on the day of the party we sit in a circle and exchange the Valentines. It is so cute and fun.

    I am forever a fan of your blog!

  6. What a super fun giveaway girl! I'm thrilled that you are offering your amazing Valentine's products, I hope I win :) Of course I was already a follower of your fabby fab blog! This year (since I am still out of school this week, which I am sooo sad about) I am going to try to make it in for just a few hours Thursday. I plan on bringing some goodies and treats to share with the kids. We are also going to make "Sweetheart Snack Mix" together. Thanks so much!

  8. What a great giveaway! So excited to be in the running:) A new follower of your blog as well. I am trying to do a little of sweet treats and a bit of kindness from the heart. A cool idea a friend of mine gave me was instead of a candy treat, they made disposable paper with seeds inside of them for the kiddos to plant "seeds of kindness" as each paper had a personal written note.

  15. Hope I am not too late! It has been a busy Monday! Your units look GREAT!
    My favorite valentine idea is.... probably talking about friendship and providing many different activities for them to make something for a friend (or friends). It teaches them about the concepts of kindness and giving! Some kids like to color, some kids like to create by using glue and other craft materials--while some like to write. I usually like to try and provide different activities for them to choose what they want to make, how they want to make it and who they choose to give it to. (Although I do try to make sure that each child receives something)

    Anyway, love the units!!!! Crossing my fingers that I get some luck this week and win!! =)
    Have a nice week.... busy as it may be!

  16. I follow your blog and these look wonderful! And not to mention would be perfect for when I move to pre-k (fingers crossed) next year. This year for our party, we are creating Cupid Floats- vanilla ice cream, cherry 7-Up, and Twizzlers for the straw.
