I have a Valentine card treat for you today that you can give to your students next week!
This card will be the size of a half a sheet of computer paper when you print it and fold it in the middle. It is made to be printed on both sides of your paper. You will need to either use card stock or thicker paper so the print will not bleed through. Don’t even bother to print on 20# paper on both sides, unless you are just making a test print.
Also, it is in landscape orientation, which makes it harder to figure out how to print both sides. If you don’t know how to do that, practice with some scratch paper and write down how you did it, so you will not forget the next time you try it. Every printer I have used over the years is different.
Now I have a duplex printer and that really saves time and paper. I just have to remember to check “bind short side” when the document is in landscape orientation.
I have some envelopes that are the right size for this card, so I will use those. If you don’t want to buy envelopes, you can give it to students without one. You could even tie the cards with some red or pink curly ribbon.
The Sudoku game is the back of the card. [Edited: I accidentally left off “dotted half note” in the Sudoku game instructions. I have reposted the corrected file. If you have already printed it, please tell your students.] I made it very easy so even beginning students can do it. The note story on the inside might be hard for beginners, but suggest they use a cheat sheet if they need to. Of course, some students won’t do this, but it is the thought that counts!
I told my students I am going to put the results of our Line and Space Challenge (see my last post) inside the card. I am also going to include a little fun size bag of candy!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
