Here's a way to give your classroom that holiday feeling on Valentine's Day.  Each student traces a template heart onto white constructions paper.  Student draws a smiley face on one side of the heart and write "Student Name is a friend" on the other side. Add 5 12" streamers made of colored ribbon, yarn, or crepe paper.  Print small hearts onto pink, purple, red, white construction paper for students to cut out.  You may write the students' names on these hearts prior to printing or have students write the names (takes longer).  Students mix and match the colored hearts and attach to the steamers, making sure they have included everyone's name.  Hang from the ceiling and add a few streamers of just hearts.  See blog entry "HEART TO HEART TALK" to get ideas of what to write onto the hearts before printing on colored paper.
