Hearts Galore!

Hearts Galore!

We’ve had both hearts (for Valentines Day) and Chinese New Year inspired activities in our classroom this week! With both celebrations on the calendar next week, we’ve been enjoying a mixture of invitations.

They are continuing into next week (with a few swaps), so I wasn’t going to post this week, but I’ve gathered quite a few photos of our heart-related activities, so thought I’d share today…

  2. Hi, Rachel, I have commented on your posts before because they really inspire me. You have inspired me so much that I was finally able to get funds to purchase a round light table. Now, I don’t know where to begin! Are there any books or posts that you would recommend to help me get organized and started with my fabulous light table? Thank you! Maureen

    • What a lovely message – thank you!
      So pleased you finally have a light table; I love mine! I’m afraid I’ve never read any books on them so can’t recommend one. If you want a few ideas, I put some of the things I’ve set up in an album on my Facebook page – if you’re on FB that is! x
