Thursday was a day of excitement for my students. Not only was it the day before a long weekend, but it was also the day we had chosen to share Valentine cards. The children each had a turn to put their cards into their classmates’ bags (I had labelled brown paper pags which each child was to take home at the end of the day). Waiting until 3pm was difficult for them but they managed. At the assigned time, the group sat in a circle on the carpet and I handed out the bags. I enjoyed their reactions as they read the cards and snacked on a candy or two. The children did not forget about me and insisted that I have a bag of my own.
When I arrived home, I read the cards. Many of them made me smile as I learned that I am a ”cool teacher” and a ”cool friend” 🙂
Tomorrow, on Valentine’s day, I know I shall not receive cards from my husband and family. Instead I will receive hugs and kisses – which are just as precious as the cards given to me by my students.
Will you receive Valnetine’s cards?
