All of last week and the beginning of this week, I had my students getting ready for valentines day. I had them decorate the classroom and make valentines for their friends. I would have them color a picture then tell me who they wanted it to be for and what they wanted to say. I explained how valentines day was about love and showing how much you care about the people in your life. The kids wrote things from “you’re my best friend,” “I love you so much,” and “I hope you enjoy all of the snacks at the party.” So when Thursday came around it was finally valentines day, it was shocking to see how happy all the children were. All day they were filled with love and holding hands with each other. They were so happy and I really thought it was cutest thing. They couldn’t wait for their friends to open all their valentines and read to them what they wrote. I guess love really was in the air that day!
