February 1, 2016
Here are some ideas for the month of February.  I hope you can use these ideas and activities in your classroom.

                                                     Valentine’s Day Ideas 

My students are learning how to count money.  Here is a Valentine’s Day counting money Freebie I made a few years ago.  You can get your FREE copy of the Valentine’s Day task cards by clicking here.

Heartprints by P.K. Halliman is the perfect book for teaching about kindness.  It is similar to the book called Have You Filled A Bucket Today?  You can get the Valentine’s Day Writing freebie by clicking here.

While I take attendance and lunch count, my students are busy with their morning work.  It is a spiral review of skills that I have already taught my students.  You can get FREE sample pages of my February morning work for second grade by clicking HERE.  You can buy the packet in my TPT store.

My early finishers practice math facts on the computer using the free web site Xtra Math.  Xtra math is an excellent way for students to master math facts.  It sends a weekly email to me so I can see how each student is progressing.  
Roll and Cover is a fun way for my students to get more practice learning their addition math facts. Students roll two dice and find the sum.  They cover the sum on the board.  The first student to cover up all their numbers is the winner.  Click here for a copy of the Valentine’s Day Roll and Cover.

We are not supposed to give out candy at our school.  For Valentine’s Day, I am giving my students bubbles.  You can buy them at Michael’s or Target.  Target sells them in multi-colors.

    Shelly, I have been teaching for 42 years now, but try to change it up all the time. Every time I go into pinterest and I am sent to your page, I know that the games or papers will be of top quality. I love all your work. Thank you for all your hard work.
