Valentine’s Day Buddy Activity

Valentine’s Day is all about spreading love and joy, and what better way to do that than by encouraging your students to learn from one another? This downloadable Valentine’s Buddy activity encourages your students to buddy up with a peer and take turns being the teacher and the student. By teaching a skill they have already mastered to a student who is still learning, they not only reinforce their own knowledge but also help another student achieve success. The best part is that students will have the opportunity to switch partners and learn new skills from their peers. It’s a great way to create a collaborative and inclusive classroom environment while spreading some Valentine’s Day cheer.

March Madness Activity

Take advantage of March Madness with this fun and interactive take on either the green dot challenge or the galaxy star challenge. 



Teaching children about the importance of taking care of our planet is crucial for a better future. This elementary activity does exactly that by encouraging students to reflect on their own actions and how they can positively impact the earth through reducing, reusing, and recycling. It not only enhances their writing skills but also instills responsible behavior toward the environment. By writing a letter, students are given a platform to express their ideas and feelings about preserving the planet. It’s incredible to see how a simple activity can inspire children to take action toward creating a healthier world for everyone.

Holiday Wishlist

The holiday season is a time of family, fun, and festivities, but it’s also a great opportunity for your students to focus on their educational goals and ramp up their learning. By using this wishlist, your students can identify the instructional skills and topics they want to work on over the holiday break, setting achievable goals and keeping themselves accountable. Whether it’s mastering math or improving their writing skills, the wishlist is a tool that can help your students make the most of their time off, supplementing their classwork and preparing them for success in the new year. With a little effort, focus, and support, your students can make the most out of their break and end the year on a high note.
