Valentine’s Day is a highlight on the school calendar. It’s a great excuse to bust out the paper and glue and get crafty. Lead your learners into being creative and hone those fine motor skills!
Valentine’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to show appreciation for people we love. It’s a great reason to celebrate love, friendship and kindness and for learners to think about the words that they use. Do their words show love and build people up? Or are they breaking down the people around them?
Below we have a list of great resources that will not only keep your class busy, but it will also open up an opportunity to discuss love and friendship. Chat to your kids about gifts that go beyond materialism, such as respect, kindness, time, generosity and thoughtfulness. They will quickly learn that “I love you” means so much more than heart-shaped balloons and chocolates.
So, welcome this day into your classroom and have fun!

Encouraging words for kids to build character and touch hearts
This is a resource just for teachers.
It is not always necessary to reward kids in front of a huge crowd of people. They don’t need to get a touchable reward every time they’ve accomplished something. Sometimes it is best to give them encouraging words to build character and to touch hearts.
This video gives teachers ideas on what to say to kids to encourage them. Sit back, relax, listen to the music and read the words. Enjoy! The words can be cut, laminated, used as reading cards or the pictures can be used as stickers. Any way that works for you in your classroom.
