Valentine's Box Projects for Kindergarten and First Grade

Valentine's Day is only a few short weeks away.  Every year I give my class the assignment of creating a Valentine's box at home and bringing it to school.  I send home a letter describing our project, then I have a sample available for the parents to see, just in case they need some inspiration.

Below are some of the boxes my former students have created.
Valentine Box Project. Let your students create a Valentines box at home with their family.  Use this Take home letter to explain the project and see just how creative your students can be.
Do you want your class to create this fun project at home?  You can find this project with directions in English and Spanish in my TpT Shop.

 Of course, teachers need to give Valentine's too.  I've been making these for the past few years.  I used to be an avid scrapbooker, so I was able to put my tools to good use.  I used a scalloped heart punch and a large circle punch.  I taped the pencils to the backside.
Free Teacher Valentines- No time to create your own.  All you need are some pencil and a printer.  Just print, cut and attach.
By the way, avoid the headache of passing out Valentine's.  I no longer give lists with names.  Kindergartners can't read their own handwriting much less all the names of their classmates.  Instead, I instruct them to bring 1 valentine for each classmate, with no names on them.  When it is time to pass them out, we line all the boxes up in a row.  Then we make a train, walking past each box as we drop our cards into them.  It is quick and simple.  You can grab this Teacher Valentine for free, just click the photo below.

Can you believe it is almost February?  Where did this month go???
