Happy Valentine's Day!! (plus FREEBIE!)

Happy Valentine's Day! My students were filled with love today (and by love I mean ice cream, cookies, chocolate, pixy sticks, etc.) and were crazy. Most of them worked hard for me in the morning, but in the afternoon we all went a little bonkers.

This morning, we read a book by our FAVORITE author Marc Brown. You guessed it, another Arthur book! I swear, if "Arthur" ever came to our classroom, I think we would start hyperventilating. We read Arthur's Valentine by Marc Brown. I told the kiddos to focus on the things are Arthur did on Valentine's Day while they were listening to me read.

After reading, we filled out a Venn Diagram comparing ourselves to Arthur, with a Valentine's Day twist. In one heart, we wrote what Arthur did on Valentine's Day, and in the other heart, we wrote what we did on Valentine's Day. Where the hearts intersected, we wrote things that both did.
You can get a copy of it here!

I knew that there would be a lot of similarities between us and Arthur, so I tried to make the middle section bigger!

Have a good rest of the week!
