I do many similar activities throughout the day. The actual "party" is a first grade sundae bar out in the hall. All classes take a turn going through, parent volunteers serve (only a few are needed), then we open cards and head home. One of my students favorite things are the mystery Valentines we receive. They are to and from characters from books we have read, including historical figures such as M.L.King. They have to use inferencing to figure out exactly who!
