We had five interactive stations:
Station One was a Sweet Heart Graphing station. In math we are working on interpreting and creating bar graphs. Shelby's mom, Stacey helped sort, explain and create graphs. They students loved working at this station and enjoyed eating their math manipulatives while they worked away!
Station Two was an Ice Cream Station! Not just plain Ice Cream, but they created an Ice Cream Sundae station where each student got to create their own personalized sundaes, adding whichever toppings they enjoyed. There were a lot of messy, yet giggling faces at this station! Thank you to Brynn's mom, Nicki for reading so many fun valentine books to them AND making sure everyone was full and having fun!
Station Three was a Memory Match Station. The students had to stay focused during this game and try to match up words and pictures during this game. Hailey's parents, Jason and Kristi, were very helpful during this game and kept all the students smiling and tatted up! They loved finding a matching set, drinking juice from heart shaped straws and getting unique Valentine tattoos!
Station Four was a heart headband stations! This station had Samson's mom, Holly and Osborne's mom, Amy working hard to create heart patterns, cut, staple and assemble heart patterns! They did a great job helping the kids create cute and creative heart headbands! I wanted one for myself they were so adorable!!
Station Five was Heart Bingo Station. The students love playing Bingo! We frequently play it with our site words, letters, and beginning sounds. This is a great way to practice Capital Letters, Lowercase Letters, and Star Words at home! Jordan's mom, Kim helped call out letter sounds, letter names, and words that began with specific letters. They loved picking out of the prize box when they won and everyone even received a goody bag after completing this station!
We ended our party by opening up our Valentine's and investigating to see all the yummy treats we had inside and handwritten Valentines inside. Since we had so many parents Ms. Bordewick and I had the opportunity to take pictures! Hope you enjoy the slideshow and hope there weren't too many terrible tummy aches when they got home!
Happy Valentine's Day!
