Valentine's Box Project

Valentines is only a few short weeks away.  Every year I give my class the assignment of creating a Valentine's holder at home and bringing it to school.  This year we will be doing our celebration on Friday the 13th.  to get the families involved, 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 download my Letter that explains the project.  The letter is available in English and Spanish.

FYI- you do not need to request access to this file.  Some districts block google drive downloads.
Valentine Box Project.  Have students create a box at home with the help from their family.  Turn homework into a fun family time.
 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.
