What are you doing tomorrow, Array freebie,... & Dr. Seuss SOS!

Happy early Valentine's Day!

What classroom plans do you have?

We are partying for an hour... and during that time, my kids will rotate between stations.  They will be...

1.) making my Valentine's Day flippy book
2.) playing JINGO and using candy hearts as their BINGO chips
3.) decorating their Valentine card holder
4.) doing a craft that has been planned by a classroom mom... I don't even know what this one is!  :)

We're having a pizza party for lunch and then moving on with our day.  I always think I'm going to do some real teaching on party days... and I'm still hoping that can happen.  But... just in case it can't...

we're going to do math with our candy hearts.  We usually sort and graph them, but this year we're going to do some array building to reinforce the concept of repeated addition.  Even my first graders are going to get in on that action because who won't benefit from practicing addition?!

Here's the worksheet I made... quickly.  I'm going to have them use their candy hearts to make each array and then draw the array (using Xs) in each box.  This could also be totally un-Valentiney if you can't use it tomorrow!  It's a *smidge* holiday-y, but I still think it could work on any day.
I've put all of the items in my shop on sale... just in case you're still in need of anything for V-day tomorrow!  ;)  Check out my Teacher's Notebook shop for more info!

As for the Dr. Seuss SOS... if you purchased my Dr. Seuss party pack from my shop, please re-download it.  Page 19 had an error on it and I am SO sorry!!!!!!!


  1. We are doing your Valentine's day flippy book tomorrow too. I'm just planning a short party. They can read their Valentines and eat a snack. That's all I can handle. Have a great day!

  2. Looks like your day is going to be fun!!! :)
    I love that you have a craft that you know nothing about. My room parents often take over and it's always fantastic! Have a great day!

  3. We are doing a little craftivity in the morning, Valentine math centers, and then exchanging cards after lunch. Although, I have been dodging about 4 different emails from parents asking to send in sweets for tomorrows "party"...I'm still trying to figure out what they got that idea...ha! Who knows what kind of sugar will show up in my class tomorrow :)

  4. That sounds fun! I used to do centers but it's much harder to get parent helpers now than it used to be. (Frown) Thanks for the reminder about your Dr. Seuss packet. I'm off to check it out. Happy Valentine's Day!

  5. Tomorrow happens to be the 100th day of school and Pastor's lunch too! Yikes! So...we will be dressed up like we are 100 years olds and in the afternoon we will be doing some center rotations with whole elementary that deal with the 100th day/Valentines Day. :) The high school science teacher is doing a fun heart lesson with us too. Hopefully all goes well...

  6. This will be a perfect independent work activity for tomorrow! Love the idea of making the arrays with the candy hearts! I am a new follower, and I am excited to check out the rest of your creative activities :)
