Happy Valentine's day!

This is one of my favourite holiday's!

This year we are running a school-wide Candy Gram sale.  Students can purchase a candy gram for their friends for fifty cents.  Many staff members have secretly decided to ensure that all students will receive at least one candy gram (did I mention we have amazing staff?).  

Thinking of doing candy grams at your school, here's the sheet we have used.  
You Can also find it on our TPT page.  

As a class we decided to combine Art and Math for a fun Valentine's day craft.  
First, students created patterns on a blank sheet of paper.  

Next, We talked about symmetry. 
We discussed where the line of symmetry was on various shapes (focussing on the heart shape).

Then, students folded paper in half and cut out half a heart.  
Here's the end result 

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Love Candy Grams! It's so awesome that you have made sure everyone will get at least one. Love it!

  2. Your art activity is excellent! We're just finishing up with 2D shapes and symmetry - I bet my kiddos would love this! Thanks for sharing!

  3. That's a clever and fun idea for symmetry. Even my Grade 1s could handle that:)
