Sweet Notes ♥

Last Friday I pulled out the classroom compliments box and my students were so excited! {We call them valentines, but they are really compliments.} My students will be writing nice notes to each other during the entire month of February. You can find the instructions and supplies to this friendship building activity in my Valentine's Day Packet on TpT {here}. 

So far, my students have written the sweetest notes to each other!!
 Reading these are definitely the highlight of my day!

I am still trying to figure out what kind of valentines I'll give my students this year.

Here are some ideas I have done in the past. They are both cheap and easy!!!

To make these Valentines, pick up some glow sticks from the dollar store. 
Then all you have to do is print them onto white card stock, cut out, and tape onto a glow stick.

For these next valentines, I got the cutest pencils from the dollar spot at Target. 
Oh man, I love Target.

  1. I love both of these ideas! I'm not sure what I want to do this year- there are sooo many ideas on Pinterest!

  2. cute ideas... I think I'll use the glow sticks this year... I usually give them candy hearts, then use them for a graphing activity.... this year my student teacher is in charge, so I need to make them a valentine...

  3. I have got to do this love notes idea in my classroom! I love it!

  7. Cute! I'm giving my kids a goodie bag. Target was selling a pack of 24 mini bubble bottles. I just happen to have 24 students so it was perfect!I also got some pencils and mini Valentine balloons from the dollar spot in Target along with goodie bags to put everything in. Basically, everything was from Target. I swear, I'm addicted to the dollar spot. I go to Target all the time JUST to check the dollar spot! :)

  8. I am going to melt crayons in a heart mold. No fancy saying with them...the kiddos think they are fascinating enough. We also have love of reading week so I am going to give each kiddo a book. I was able to get the books from the year enc clearance that Scholastic does and some of my points. Your ideas are very cute!
