Sorry for the 2nd Post, It's a Freebie

I'm home sick today and after watching hours of Sandy Hook Elementary Coverage, I had to turn it off.  Each little girl reminds me of my own.  I just cannot imagine the heartache these parents are experiencing.

I took meds, took a nap and then I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep.  Since I only have a few days left, I'm thinking about what I plan to do when I get back to school after the break.  I started thinking about Valentine's Day and all of the cute activities that go along with it.  I actually like Valentine's Day, probably because of the candy;)  When I taught Kinder, I gave each student a baggie full of hearts and showed them how to make different animals using the hearts.  Then, they made heart animals and we graphed the number of hearts on each animal.  Students then attached them to card stock and made a card for a classmate. This year in 3rd grade, I don't teach math and I doubt I will be able to use a lot of instruction time to make a craft, So, I made these cute pencil toppers/cards/lollipop cards that I am going to give my students as pencil toppers.  Click above and download them for FREE or visit my TPT Store and you can download for FREE!
