Happy Valentine

I had already planned to give my students toothpaste and toothbrushes for Valentine's Day.  Then I saw First Grade Teaching's idea. Here is my version of her great idea.  I used a program that I have to cut the tooth out with my Cricut.  I have a small class, so I could have cut them by hand, but I like being able to work on other stuff while the machine cuts.

With snow days and testing, we did not have time to make Valentine holders in class.  As a Family Involvement Project, students made their own holders at home.  I gave them some ideas and even provided some supplies.  The Love Boat idea came from Family Fun Magazine.  My family has been going through orange juice a lot lately.  There was almost enough juice cartons for the whole class. Other recycled materials were cereal boxes, tissue boxes, and shoe boxes.  There was one mailbox kit, and one store bought mailbox.  One student used fun foam to make a bag (the red with the lime green hearts). They did a fantastic job.
