5+ Valentine's Day Activities for Special Education

I can't believe it is almost Valentine's Day already! Are you celebrating Valentine's Day in your classroom this week? Here's a few of my favorite Valentine's Day activities that you can easily include in your activities all throughout this week or for your Valentine's Day parties! 
Valentine's Day Party Ideas for Special Education Classrooms

Math using Conversation Hearts
I loved doing this estimating lesson. This is great for your students who need a bit of a challenge. This activity is a freebie from Miss Britnee on TpT, read more about it and grab the freebie here!

We also did conversation hearts with my lower students! We practiced color sorting, counting, and graphing. There are like 50 freebies for activities like these on TpT! I thought these free worksheets looked great, and check out even more candy heart math lessons here. This is such a fun and classic activity. If your students love candy, they will love doing these math lessons!

I love the polka-dots! You can paint them with a variety of items, including pencil erasers and q-tips. It's fun to switch it up sometimes! :)

Valentine's Day Cards
Of course, you can't have a Valentine's Day party without cards! I love these cards because students are able to personalize their card, not only by coloring it, but by including their own words and thoughts, making it a really meaningful card.

These cards include symbol support and choices for your symbol readers, tracing options with visual choices for your beginning writers, and mix and match sentence starters for your students who might be able to write, but sometimes need some help thinking of what to say!

You could have students write to everyone in their class, their parents, siblings, grandparents, and the list goes on! Have fun with it! You can grab these differentiated Valentines cards here.

Valentine's Day BINGO
What's a party without bingo?! I love these bingo boards from Live Speak Love. Head over to her blog to download these bingo boards and other party games! :)

Valentine's Day Journal
I added this free Valentine's Day journal to my TpT store this month. I absolutely love how these journals allow for my students to write using their own thoughts errorlessly and that there is an appropriate level for all of my students. Grab this journal here!

What are you doing this week? I'd love to hear about it!

  1. All these are truly fantastic Valentine's day Activities. I wish I could have found this post earlier. Our dinner party on Valentine's Day was quite enjoyable. We organized it at our favorite event space and everyone enjoyed it.
