Valentines Week! (and a Freebie}

We are getting ready for our Valentine's Elegant Party on Thursday!

Here are few pictures from previous years:

Our chair covers are just pink butcher paper cut and slipped over the chairs and then tulle that I have tied around the chairs in a bow (I do this for our Mother's Day Tea also).

All the students get dressed up in their best Sunday dress - {here is my little one from his party last year} -

 The boys escort the girls into the classroom and to their chairs. {They even pull the chair out for the girls}. The students use their best manners while seated and eating {which we have discussed at length}.  Then the boys ask the girls to dance and they dance to elegant {slow and classical} music.

It is a fun event! 

In the afternoon we sort our conversation hearts by color and count and graph.  I got mine from Carson Dellosa years ago, but here is a super cute one from Babbling Abby {click here}.

Of course, I had to decorate my classroom, and I made these from First Grade Blue Skies (these are from last year - I forgot my camera)

and I had to make the cute Valentine craft from Miss Kindergarten {well, I forgot my camera - but they are super cute!}

We also made these cute Heart Men! {Whew! This has been a busy month!}

With President's Day coming up, I can't wait to make the cute President craft from Erica Bohrer!

What are you doing for Valentines?

An elegant party...what a fun idea. I might get brave and try a mother's tea. Unfortunately we are discouraged from doing anything that might leave someone out.

For our Mother's Day Tea, I make sure to invite the Principals, Counselor and anybody else that might be able to come. That way, if their Mom can't come, I have a substitute "Mom" available! The kids always get excited that the Principal was their Mom for a day!
