I Love Valentine’s “Week”, a Freebie, and a TpT Giveaway

Valentine’s Day Week (It
should actually be a season of the year.)
One thing that I love about
Valentines Day is that it is a-ok to wear pink with red. As a matter of fact,
it actually looks good together! 
As teachers, we tend to see it as a
fun friendship day amongst the students and teachers. However, high school
girls tend to see it as a nerve-wracking day. Hoping to NOT get a valentine
from a boy “out of the blue,” or as the case may be, hoping that “the
boyfriend” will actually follow through with something meaningful, yet not
extravagant. It is truly a rock and a hard place for many. 
However, as far as young primary
students go…it couldn’t be more fun! (Except for Christmas, of course.) 
In the past I have used printables,
or rather copies, from the oldie-but-goody resource books, for everything
including Valentine bag decorations, classwork, and homework. Now that I know
how to create things with PPT, I cannot wait to create the next printable that
we will use for  ________________  (fill in the blank).
  
Creating things for TpT has certainly
been a creative outlet for me. It is actually relaxing to me. Also, it is
exciting to see one of my lessons that I have created in the past become an
actual product that looks so cute with the graphics and clipart that I am now
addicted to. 🙂 Thanks to Ashley Hughes, Krista Wallden, and Lovin Lit to name
a few. Of course sometimes the cute clipart inspires activities galore, which
was the case for my latest Valentine activity pack. 
So…here is my latest creation that
is Valentines-ish as well as contraction-y and friendly letter-esque. 

FREEBIE

I
have posted a freebie sample of the larger pack if you would like to check it
out here.

I
realize that it is very close to V-Day for all of you early planners, but I had
to post the parts that are complete. I posted them once, and then decided to
revise and expand the pack. I have other ideas as well, but they may have to
wait until next year.
You
can find the freebie sample here
and the full pack here.
They are both in my store on teachers pay teachers, The Think
Aloud Cloud
.
And
now for the TpT giveaway…
The
teachers who are a part of the Freebie-licious blog are have a big blog hop
giveaway. They are each giving away $10 gift cards to TpT! Now THAT is the
perfect Valentine’s Day gift!! Would one of you please email my husband about
that? If you would like to join in on the fun, click on the button below.
BTW,
I learned something new…

Lori
from Teaching with Love and Laughter had this challenge on her blog to link to
Freebie-licious. I did it! I would NOT have been able to figure that one
out even 8 months ago. Good times! (Never mind…I haven’t figured it out quite
yet. Maybe next time!)

Have
a wonderful pink and red day on Friday!!
