Love it or hate it, Valentines Day is here to stay – Thank you Hallmark!
Whilst we think of Valentines Day as being a day for couples only – it really doesn’t have to be.
Has anyone heard of Galentines where you get your girls together for a night out?!
Anyway, Valentines Day is a fantastic opportunity to build positive relationships with your students and have some fun.
Here are 8 ways that you can celebrate in your classroom!
1. Write a "love note" to your students
Whether it’s a phrase as simple as, “I love having you in my classroom!” or “You are kind and I’m so happy you’re here” surprising your students with unexpected words of encouragement when they arrive at their desk will make them feel warm and fuzzy inside! This can be easily done with post-its. It might take 5 minutes but remember, we’re not looking for essays here!
2. Create a Britto-Inspire Heart for Art Lesson
4. Create a Modern Multicolour Heart for Art Lesson
5. Discuss what love means to your students.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to talk with your students about the meaning of love in your lives and all of the special ways that you show your love for each other.
6. Make a list of what you love and are thankful for.
Have your students write down the people and things they are thankful for and why.
7. Have a Party!
Play some love songs.
Throw up a few decorations and get into the spirit!
8. Spread the love
Find ways to share the love with people who need it. Talk about the importance of everyday kindness towards others. Challenge your students to do one Random Act of Kindness (RAK).
Have a lovely day everyone!
