Valentine Fun!

It is official! I can make just about anything with hearts! Our class has been very busy this week making our Valentine boxes. We started with good 'ole cereal boxes and covered them with construction paper. Then I made what I call my "open my big mouth" mistake. I told then class they could put anything they wanted on the front of their boxes. OH BOY, REALLY MRS. KAREN???
Yes, the minute it came out of my mouth I knew I was in trouble. The first group picked easy things, a mouse, a butterfly, even a pig.
Then there was the snake
The puppy
All easy to figure out. THEN, it started, "Mrs. Karen I want a cow!" Oh my! Well, here is our cow, isn't she cute? Emily is so proud of her.
Finally, I heard the one that literally made me get a little nervous. "Mrs. Karen I want a crab!". A crab?? I had no idea, but here is what we came up with.
Isaiah's Dad even dropped by today to see if he was really going to put a crab on his Valentine box!
But to me the cutest was Reid's. Reid is a huge University of Alabama fan. And in the south we take our football very serious. So serious in fact that we even call Reid, "Roll Tide Reid". I knew Reid would like an elephant so we came up with Roll Tide Reid's Alabama elephant.
This is also "N" week so we made a bird in a nest. Cute huh??

Don't tell anyone but I really am going to miss talking about Valentine's Day and all the fun we have had with hearts!
We have snow and ice forecasted for tomorrow (and southern's have no idea how to drive in that type of weather) so I'm not sure we will make it to school. But on Friday we will be spending the day talking more about Valentine's Day and the letter "N". We'll also be heading to the kitchen for our weekly science experiments so I hope you come back and visit us.
