Then we added the current popcorn words! I used our school die cut machine to die cut hearts in "conversation" colors and then added the same popcorn word to the heart. The students simply read the word and match up.
I found these super cute heart shaped containers at the Dollar Tree and Target in the dollar spot along with heart shaped table scatter at both places.
Then I used my Cameo to die the sight word for the outside of the container with vinyl and added the same letters to the individual hearts. The students the build each word into the heart container.
PSSSTT...don't tell my team but I spent a little time today making this for each of them!!!
The last Valentine Center that I really like and I made it for FRREEE with the help of a Facebook Request to my friends and a quick note home to parents. I asked for all of the extra Valentine's they had at home or in the pack they had bought for that year. Most packs come with more students than are in our classroom--or less so parents bought 2 packs. Then I glued the valentines on pink construction paper and searched for sight words that my little ones knew. They used a dry erase marker to circle the words right on the Valentines and they love this because of the fun characters.
I have been a little MIA but I am committing to more post in 2013!!!! I look forward to reaching my 300th follower so I can have a give away!!!!
