February 2024 Products

February is here with National Pizza Day, Fat Tuesday, Valentine’s Day and Random Acts of Kindness Day. Several of the themes this month focus on teaching children how to interact with others. Emotions and feelings are underlying several celebrations during this month. But the month starts with a fun day. 

The National Pizza Day is marked on the 9th February. A great way to bring smiles to your students’ faces.  Shape math is a popular way to bring joy to the geometry lesson. Craftivies such as ovens, pizza items, and  chef’s hats will ensure that your classroom looks stunning for the celebrations.

Tuesday the 13th is Fat Tuesday. Fat Tuesday is also known as Mardi Gras or Shrove Tuesday. Mardi Gras does not happen on the same day every year. Mardi Gras French for fat Tuesday and the holiday is based on the Christian calendar. Bring the celebrations into your classroom by making a Fact Booklet filled with interesting writings and drawings about the history behind the celebrations. Decorate the classroom with colorful jester craft or Mardi Gras masks. Provide your students with a chance to develop their Mardi Gras themed drawing skills by using a How to Draw resource. 

Your students will love this week since the day after Mardi Gras is Valentine’s Day. This day offers a wonderful opportunity to reflect on how we interact with other people. The book "Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch" is such a wonderful story to share with your class. This charming book by Eileen Spinelli, lovely illustrates the power of love and friendship. My storybook companion comes with a cute Mr. Hatch craft and contains Valentine hug craft, chocolate candy patterns, scavenger kisses hunt, and estimation hearts. A lovely mixture to ensure that your students get to practice their math and language skills on this special day. Follow the easy step to step drawing lessons and enjoy watching your students creating a cupid, rings, heart cupcakes,  love letters and roses.

The Random Acts of Kindness Day is celebrated on 17th February. Use the resources below to help make kindness the norm in your classroom. The idea behind the day is to encourage people to do good deeds for others. Create a caring environment by allowing your students time to reflect on how acts of kindness, even small, can make not only the classroom but also their neighborhood a better place. Making a Kindness Quilt is an awesome way to finish the celebrations. The activity uses the book "The Kindness Quilt" by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace as inspiration.
