I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
We make this valentine class book. Students brainstorm things they can do on Valentine's day. I type the sentence and cut it up. Then they put the words back in order and glue it on. Finally, they illustrate.
