This year, our students have fallen in LOVE with our classroom read-aloud books. We thought it would be fun for our students to make Valentine Boxes that represent something (character, setting, object, etc.) from one of the books we read in class. We sent home a list of some of our classroom favorites. Each student chose his or her favorite book and used it as inspiration to create a box. Our Valentine’s Day was extra special. Students had a blast sharing which book their box represented. Check out these adorable read-aloud Valentine boxes:
You can download the letter we sent home to parents if you would like to this with your class.
