I love February because it is a month full of appreciating each other and heart activities. So of course the first activity is going to be making valentines day cards for your community. I put out different colored paper, wrote names/examples of the board, and if they were following the instructions.. they got to use glitter! If you don't have an idea on where to donate hand made Valentine's Day cards, check out Martha Stewart's website!
The second week we really focus on our buddies. This week we partner up and ask questions to each other. To the left I have the simple questionaire and to the right I have the picture images I used for my students to answer as independently as they can. Great way to get our buddies socializing :)
This week we drew. This sounds simple, but it requires a lot of prompting for all students. The examples to the left are two students in my classroom and they both required one on one support. I drew a panda on my paper while they copied it onto their own paper. To the right is the example I found online that I went off of. You can also get creative with the background. We used sponges and stamped hearts all over red paper.
We always have one week of Buddy Class that is a "play week." I either find stuff on TeachersPayTeachers, Super Teacher Worksheets, play board games in small groups, or reading groups.
