Valentine's Day Remix
First of all, how much does this girl's mother love her? This hair was TOO adorable.
This activity was an extension of the This Heart Says little book. I just drew a big jar, the kids chose a candy heart, copied it and cut it out and glued it in the jar. Then they got to eat their heart. Repeat. They LOVE this and the more they ate, the more they loved it, naturally.
Let me tell you there was a LOT of sounding out happening as we wrote, glued, and viewed our handiwork. This had every ingredient for a great language arts lesson: writing, reading, engagement, excitement, and candy. Yep.
