Time for some party planning fun! I’m a sap. I love the hearts and pink and chocolate. Mostly the chocolate. I’ll also jump at any excuse for a party. Check out this post to check how I run my parties. If you are naively thinking you can throw some cookies on the table and grab a few games – you are sadly mistaken my friend. You are cruising for some extreme level meltdowns if you even dream of doing something unstructured like that. You need schedules, visuals, and centers. Class parties are structured and organized – just like our school days.
Playing February Bingo! We will probably spice this up by using candy pieces as bingo chips!
We will also be doing some cut and paste Valentine activities! I will be using my File Folder Activities for Valentine’s as cut and paste activities. Since I have easy, matching ones and harder, pattern alphabet ones – I will be able to easily differentiate for my wide range of types of learners!
We will also be doing the Valentine Following Direction Worksheets! These are free in my TpT store – so be sure to grab them before V-Day! We have been using them for homework this week! I will adapt these for my lower kids by adding color cues to the basic worksheets.
Of course we need a cooking station! What would be complete without a little food, right. We had a blast making Strawberry milkshakes last week in speech. We have done a lot of cookie decorating but I’m thinking of getting crafty with my new kitchenaide mixer I got for Christmas and make mini cupcakes for the kiddos to decorate. (fyi: my school does not have rules or guidelines regarding home made food) look at these cute ones!
Last but not least – crafty crafts. There are too many cute options! I still can’t decide. Here are the some we have (stolen from pinterest) in the past:

Links to these are all in my pinterest Fabulous Finds Board! What are you all doing at Valentine’s celebrations?
