9.27.2021: Google very recently changed drive links for security reasons, so you may find that when you click on a link for one of my printables that you need to submit a share request. PLEASE only submit one share request per item! These have to be manually confirmed and I will get to them when I get to them. I promise you that sending me 12 requests in rapid succession will not make that happen faster, lol! I do not sit on my computer waiting around to send people instant shares of freebies. Thank you so much for your patience as I try to sort out this latest Google mess.

Chocolate and St. Valentine

We need to get out of our schooltime funk, so today we took a little trip down a rabbit trail and learned about St. Valentine. And chocolate. In addition to the usual holiday-ey worksheets, we made prayer cards for St. Valentine,


Peter’s artistic rendering of St. Valentine.

and did some other activities.


Matching up lower case and capital letters.


Chocolate box math.

We watched a great (short!) series of videos from Hershey on how chocolate is made (skip the last segment, it’s basically a commercial for all their different candies), learned about chocolate history and completed a mini-lapbook on chocolate.

An almost pain-free day.


Emma after I took the markers and glue away from her.

It’s hard being almost 2, isn’t it?

But the best thing about the day? David’s Valentine’s Day Acrostic Poem (I don’t normally do those things, but he saw the worksheet and thought it was cool).

V is for Velcro

A is for Aerodynamic

L is for Luftwaffe

E is for Empathy

N is for Necktie

T is for Thrice

I is for Ice

N is for Neural

E is for Elk

Not sure I’m seeing the big picture…is my 10-year-old deeper than me?

Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
