February Ideas for Kindergarten
Are you looking for fun and purposeful February Ideas for Kindergarten? I’ve got you covered whether you are teaching remotely or in-person. February just so happens to be my favorite teaching month. Yet, it is one of the busiest months with all of the holidays – Groundhog Day, 100th Day, Valentine’s Day, and Presidents’ Day! It’s funny that the shortest month has so many things packed into such little time! I wanted to design a bundle full of low and no prep resources to help you integrate these holidays into your kindergarten or first grade curriculum. Included in this monthly MEGA bundle are bulletin boards, writing activities, teacher and student Valentines, science, math, journal prompts, and so much more…
My February Mega Bundle now includes 11 of my best selling resources…
1. GROUNDHOG DAY FUN PACKET & BULLETIN BOARD BUNDLE
This set includes craft templates, differentiated writing options for k-2, voting ballots, math (graphing predictions), a grammar worksheet on groundhog adjectives, and a Groundhog Day song. Because Groundhog Day falls on a Sunday this year, be sure to have your students cast their ballots during the last week of January. My kids love this unit each year!
2. VALENTINE’S DAY WRITING BUNDLE
This writing packet is designed for beginner writers and includes folded Valentine card templates, a Valentine 5 Senses writing page, How to Make a Valentine mini-books, differentiated custom heart writing templates, and a BONUS morning work heart color word page. These activities are perfect for Writing Centers as students can do most of them independently at this point in the year.
3. FEBRUARY NO PREP JOURNAL PROMPTS PACKAGE
This monthly journal prompt resource features beginner writing paper with a writing checklist, 30 prompts, and 2 formats. They are perfect for writers in kindergarten and 1st! Writing Workshop for the month is complete at the touch of a button! My monthly journals have been featured in the TPT Blog and have gotten excellent client reviews. What I love most about using them is that no matter how busy our day gets, we always write every single day thanks to having the journals on hand. You can also use some of the prompts as individual worksheets at your Writing Center!
4. VALENTINE’S DAY SCIENCE 5 SENSES MINI-BOOKS
These mini-books are a great way to integrate writing and science in your Kindergarten and 1st grade classroom. Choose from 4 differentiated formats. After a read aloud of your favorite Valentine’s Day story, have your students write about what they see, hear, smell, touch, and taste around the holiday!
5. VALENTINE’S DAY SLOW MUCH FUN SLOTH WRITING FLIP CRAFT Bulletin Board Bundle
This Sloth Slow Much Love resource will not disappoint! It may have been my favorite bulletin board of the year last school year. It’s just that cute! It includes options for creating a Valentine or keepsake for Mom, Dad, or someone special. Send one home, or use the lettering to create a bulletin board display in your classroom. All craft templates are included to create the sloth shown in the preview photos along with your choice of wording for Valentine’s Day / Mother’s Day / Father’s Day cover options, differentiated heart writing paper templates, and BONUS bulletin board lettering!

Resources for In-Person, Hybrid, or Remote Learning
While many of these resources were originally designed for in-person instruction, I have easily adapted them for remote learning. Currently, I am doing a mix of in-person /hybrid with live streaming and one remote day each week. The two resources below, my monthly writing and math journals, have been life-savers for me during all of the back and forth this year. Each provides enough pages for the entire month!
You can access all of my February Ideas for Kindergarten in my February MEGA Bundle of No and Low Prep Resources!
