Tomorrow is FEBRUARY 1st! WHAT! I am working hard today to make sure I am all prepped and ready for this fun filled month! I thought I would share with you what will be happening in my classroom!
My favorite book for this month is Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch. It is just SO SWEET! I will be reading this story, while incorporating some reading and writing as well. We will be comparing and contrasting Mr. Hatch at the beginning and the end, writing about why it is important to be kind, going over story elements, and doing some comprehension checks!
I will also have these kindness hearts set out for my students to write to fellow classmates throughout the month (more on that later! 😉
I also love using exit tickets. These exit tickets go great with the month of February! You can get them for free here!!!
Stations is a great way for me to include some more “love” themed fun while still working on some skills! I have some adorable station cards for reading and writing skills as well as math skills that will be rotated throughout the month. Color by products, multiplication practice, and writing skills are a few of the fun things my students will be working on!
Last but not least my absolute favorite thing that I am so excited to have my students work on this month are my February themed writing prompt cards! My students LOVE our winter themed cards. They have real photos to help spark their imagination. These could be used as fast finishers, a quick writing activity, during stations, or even as a quick grade! I have used them for all of the above! I can’t wait to put our valentine prompt cards out!
I hope you can use some of these “loveee”ly ideas this month in your classrooms! I also have a super cute and fun freebie coming this week so check back for that! p.s. If you need some help kickstarting your February…ALL of these resources will be on sale until tomorrow night!
