Owl You Need is LOVE


Love Monster Valentines Box


One of my favorite Valentine's Day books is Love Monster by Rachel Bright. We read the story the make our own Love Monster. Here's what you'll need:
1. Love Monster (book)
2. Tissue boxes (one for each student)
3. Paint
4. White card stock (teeth)
5. White circles
6. Glitter glue
7. Other decorations

I ask students to each bring in tissue boxes. I also save some from my classroom for children who do not provide one. The first day we paint out Love Monsters. Sometimes we paint a second coat in the afternoon. The second day we decorate our monsters by giving him/her eyes, legs, arms. At this point, it is up to the student to decorate. They can make their monster look however they'd like.  On Valentine's Day I use the monsters to hold valentines. It's perfect because it holds all the candy and cards they get.

Multi-Sensory Sight Words (Valentine's Style)

In this activity, students practice spelling sight words and exploring word families. All you need is shaving cream and glitter. Simply spray shaving cream on a table and sprinkle red glitter (for the Valentine's Day effect). Ask students to spell CVC words, sight words, etc. Easily differentiated and FUN!

  1. What kind of paint did you use to paint the tissue boxes? Tempera or acrylic???

    1. Liz,

      I use tempera and added glue so it didn't crack. Good luck!
