Spread some L-O-V-E

I am officially back from my week long blog hiatus...no it wasn't intentional but kind of needed.  I had been feeling overwhelmed lately and well, just needed some "me" time if you know what I mean!  This week we are rockin' out some cute and *much needed* FUN activities! My little firsties have been working so hard since we have been back that I think they deserve some "them" time too!

I love the spirit of Valentine's and having the kids show their love and compassion for others.  Today we did just that! We had a brainstorm first of words that are associated with Valentine's Day or just love in general. Here is what my smarties came up with.

We then read Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch (so cute btw) and added more lovin' words to our heart chart. 

Next, I had them visualize someone in their lives that they truly love and I handed them this:

Inside, they had to write 4 reasons why they loved the person they chose and part of their homework was to deliver it to that person (if possible) and read it to them. This question melted my heart, "Mrs. Griffith, how will I get this book to Jesus?"  I LOVE moments like that!!

I have uploaded the book to my TpT store for free so race on over and grab it up! Just click on the picture below.

Hope your week is full of love!


  1. I LOVE this book! Discovered it last year and it instantly became one of my favorites. Thanks for the heart book - so cute!

  2. Hi LIndsay,
    Your blog is just too cute and I can relate to feeling a bit overwhelmed sometimes with it all, blog, teaching, family, tpt, etc. It makes me tired just thinking about it all. This project is too cute. So glad I found you and am your newest follower.
