Tissue Hearts

I trace a heart onto white paper with a black Sharpie. Children put red and pink tissue paper squares on the heart by painting over the pieces with liquid starch. When they are dry, the children cut out the heart.

Valentines Class Book

Children dictate the rest of the sentence: “I love ___” and draw a picture to illustrate. To make our class books, I use “presentation book covers” from an office supply store or Walmart. It has a sturdy plastic cover with a clear insert, and the pages are also clear inserts. I just slip in a page for the front cover, and slip in the children’s pages inside. These can be reused. Use this free printable template for the pages of your book.
