Valentine's Day 2011
Valentine's Day 2011 already?!? I thought we just brought in the new year. February Family projects were to decorate a container to hold class valentines. They were so cute. Make sure to check out the Smilebox below. We counted, graphed, measured, and even wrote using our conversation hearts. I found the cutest activity online where a teacher had the students use the words on the heart in sentences-and glue on the hearts. ADORABLE is all I can say and yes they are hanging out in the hallway. Check out Dylan and Hannah's paper. My favorites were:
My cutie is my little brother named Logan. and My Mom text my dad XOXO. and You rock Mrs. Wright. Ashton wrote My mom is my girl. and My dad is my soulmate. Joe wrote My mom and dad are soulmates. Michael wrote I had my 1st kiss. I hope not. They were cute so make sure to stop by and read the rest. Here are some random pictures from the Valentine festivities.
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
