Valentine's Celebration!

Our Valentine's Day Celebration was so much fun! I had a great group of parents that organized and came up with some very creative games and activities for the students. We began the day with the students passing out their Valentine cards to each of their friends. After that, we played a game called "Guess the Lovebug." Parents sent in a baby picture of their child and one of the parents put them on a slideshow. The students and I got to write down the name of the student that we thought belonged to each picture. This was so much fun! Some of the pictures looked exactly like the student now, (you could see that little baby face still in there). Some of the pictures were more difficult to figure out because of the hair color being so different or no hair at all. I was so proud that I only got two wrong! The kids had a blast playing this game and it was so fun to see who they thought each baby picture belonged to. It was especially cute when they didn't know that it was their own baby picture! The students played a game where they spun the heart spinner and whoever it landed on was who they gave a compliment to. After their personalized compliment, they got a Hershey's Hug and gave it to that friend. Our class is so sweet that there is never a shortage of compliments and "bucket-filling." Then the kids got to ice and decorate their very own heart-shaped sugar cookie! YUM! The students played a game in which they had to work together at their table to use their individual straws to pick up conversation hearts and transfer them to another plate/bowl on their table. We played this game two times because it was so much fun! The last game the students played was Valentine Bingo. This was extra special because students filled out their bingo card with names from our class. They always love when their name is a part of a game. We had lots of Bingo winners! What a fun day!
