Perfectly Positive Valentines Classroom Project
Exchanging valentines is a common activity in the classroom, especially with the younger grades. With the spirit of Valentines Day in mind, here is an easy and fun valentine craft to promote positive feedback and community in your classroom. The purpose of sending a Valentine to someone is to send loving, friendly sentiments. This valentine craft works with even the older students and can be tailored into a writing activity or lesson.
Make the Valentines
First, have each student creatively design their name in the center of a piece of paper. For a more festive approach, have them design their name within a heart shape. Then have the class write a positive message, adjective, or note about their fellow classmate on each of the papers. Provide examples on the board for those who may need help getting their creative juices flowing. Depending on the grade level, you can give specific parameters for a more fun and challenging activity. For instance, have each student use at least 3 positive adjectives to describe their fellow classmate.
Each student will be left with a beautiful display of warmth and kindness from their class - the best Valentine's Day gift ever!
