1. Throw a Valentine’s Day math party
2. Give your students valentines with math tasks to go with them
3. Make your valentines into a math game!
Have your students use their new Play Doh treat to do measurement math tasks! Just add dice and a ruler and use it for your math party.
4. Try a new take on the Valentine’s Day mailbox
A couple of years ago I did a Superhero theme in my classroom. To incorporate that in our Valentine’s Day celebrations we made these Superhero city mailboxes for collecting valentines. Students wrote kindness cards for all of their classmates i the days leading up to the 14th. They got to deliver them along with their valentines into everybody’s mailbox.

5. Make a Valentine Bulletin Board You Can Leave Up For Months
Since the MLK holdiay, our 100th day, and Valentine’s Day fell so close together my teammates and I decided to work smarter not harder. We created a 100 Dreams for the World bulletin board by having our students write their 100 dreams for the world. Our 3-in-1 bulletin board turned out so beautifully and it filled our hallway with wishes for the world written by our students. Were so moved by some of the things they wrote. See our students’ 100 Dreams for the World bulletin board in this post and be sure to download the free templates while you’re there if you’d like to make one with your class.
