So I'm the first parent to volunteer to help with M's classroom party...and I felt I was late in getting back to her teacher! Mrs. R told me that since she hadn't heard from anyone, she was going to just have the kids exchange Valentine's and let them have free time for the last hour of class. So...I feel I should step up and help plan a (basic) party so the kids can do something a little special that afternoon.
I know this board is filled with creative types...if anyone has great ideas for classroom crafts, games, or treats I'd love to hear them! I've been Googling all afternoon but first-hand experience about what works well in a classroom would be great. (These are first graders.)
