Holidays and a Giveaway

Aloha friends!! Are you all ready for the big day tomorrow?  I didn't go all out as we have been busy with Chinese New Year and President's Day! Whew, that's a lot of holidays and all in one week!!

Our school has a lot of fun for Chinese New Year.  We have a big parade and all of the classes create art and dress up.  We also have Traditional Chinese Music playing as the children parade down the fire lane.

All the parents come out and watch and cheer everyone on!

So with that big event out of the way, onto Valentine's Day!

I have made my little pencil tags and bought cute erasers for all my students. 

I also made a little tag to add to their award necklaces.

I blogged about my Tags this summer that I made for my kids.  Click here to take you to the post.

I made tags specifically for my class with lots of surf terms.  I have had several people ask me to list them in my store so I went to work and made tags that could be used in anyone's classroom. 

All you need to do is print them, laminate and hole punch.  You could use a piece of yarn, twine or plastic string if you didn't want to purchase the metal chains.

Here is a sneak peak...

I tried to include as many different subjects and items as possible, and I have different graphics for some of the same awards to give you more choices.  There are also grade specific tags for grade K-2

This is what they look like in my class.

This little person has earned quite a few of these tags!

My camera is not the best,  I took several pictures, but they just don't look as fantastic as they are, lol.

My kids love to get these awards! If you are interested in getting this set you can check them out in my TpT store.

I would love to give away a set of them for Valentine's Day!   Leave me a comment and I will pick a winner on Friday.  Don't forget your email, so I can contact you!

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Valentine's Day.

  There is not a specific translation in Hawaiian but you could say:

 Hou'oli ka la aloha kakou 
which means 

Happy Day of Love and Aloha for us all!!


  1. I love this idea. I am giving out beads for each set of multiplication facts mastered, and the kids are loving it. Laminated tags would be even better!

  10. The tags are the perfect incentive for my kiddos. They don't have a lot at home and LOVE anything they can get their hands on at school. I'm adding printer ink to my shopping list!
