Valentine’s Day Activites & Read-Alouds for the Elementary Classroom

Share this post :

Love is in the air! We love Valentine’s Day Read-Alouds so much in the classroom setting. There is something about Valentine’s and little kids that makes it magical!  We’ve gotten over the January slump, and maybe even that mid-year testing hump, and it’s time to celebrate! Valentine’s Day in the classroom can be fun and exciting, or it can be absolute chaos. In our experience, having the perfect Valentine’s Day classroom activities can be crucial. It can determine whether you leave the day in a frazzled mess or filled with the holiday spirit!

Teachers sometimes don’t have the extra time to sit at the reading rug to read books outloud, so instead we WATCH & LISTEN. Great for transitioning between lessons, at the end of the school day, reading time, or party day. Your kiddos will love them.
