Happy (Almost!) Valentine's Day!

Hey everyone! It's Angie here from The First Grade Scoop. Things are quite busy here! I don't know what it is, but all these snow days (we've had four... Normally we have ZERO) and holidays (we were off for Lincoln's Birthday yesterday) have me totally off. But warm weather is in the future, so life is good!

I thought I'd share with you a freebie that I use every year with my students.

Your kiddos can use the sorting mat to help sort their hearts by colors (great for reading color words!), then complete the graph. There's also simple addition sentences, using the number of each color of hearts the kids have. Finally, your kiddos can work on making a pattern with the hearts before they gobble them up! (Okay, so I've noticed most kids in my classes DON'T like the hearts! So most go in the trash, but I digress.)

Because of all these snow days, our 100th day falls on Valentine's Day. I think that's a sign to take some Advil before getting to school tomorrow! We don't do a ton for the 100th day (our kindergarten does), but I am using Old Fart Booth today to take pictures of my kiddos and transform them into their much older selves for a quick writing prompt tomorrow.

Have a fun Valentine's Day tomorrow and stay warm!
