Happy Valentine's Day!

I used The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond as my book this week for the younger grades. Our craft was a very simple umbrella with "raining" hearts. I got the umbrella from here. I cut out little pink and red hearts with the elision cutter. The kids had a ball coloring their umbrellas and gluing hearts in between answering questions/discussing the book. I covered WH questions, past tense verbs, story retell, prepositions, and more using this book. 

My older kids have enjoyed learning about the Olympics. Last week, we read an article and watched a video about bobsled racing, which was a big hit. This week, we're reading about curling. I found a great free reading comprehension activity from TpT, which you can grab here. We watched this video to see it in action and learn a little more. This has been super motivating for my older crowd! Next week, we plan to learn about the luge.

What did you do this week?


  1. I had a hard time deciding between Valentine's & the Olympics, but Valentine's won out. I'm doing Olympics next week; I found a couple of clips on youtube that have a summary of most of the events, and I found some activities to go along with it. We've only had 1 full week of school since the break, so I haven't had as much time to spend on themes as I would have liked!

  2. Hello, this weekend is pleasant designed for me, as this point in time i am reading this great educational paragraph here at my residence.
