An Unexpected Valentine's Craft!

Yep...love is all around! It's FEBRUARY!

A few months ago I started putting up a "themed" bulletin board on one of my whiteboards in my class. Last month, for January it was "WINTER adjectives" and I had a big Penguin holding a sign. My class brainstormed a list of words that we think of when we think of winter, and they had to be adjectives.

So....today, I thought I'd surprise them by changing the board so we could brainstorm some FEBRUARY words.

I made the cute little "HEART-MAN" in the corner, then put the words "WORDS WE LOVE"....

When my class came back from lunch, I asked them to look at the board and tell me what they thought we were going to be doing. 
EVERY stinkin' one of them said "YAY!!! We're gonna make HEART-GUYS!"

That wasn't really my plan....


lol...How am I supposed to say no, when they are all just so excited about something?!?!!

And, you know what???? Those little HeartGuys ended up being a GREAT addition to what is soon to be our Valentine's Bulletin board!


Now I can fill the middle with their Valentine's POEMS!!!
