A Sweet Valentine

I don’t do much in my classroom for Valentine’s Day but we do make cards. This year, my colleague came up with a cute idea for parent cards which I thought I would try out. On a piece of card, the children carefully used cotton buds to create hearts with tempura paint. The cards were addressed to both parents. Those children whose parents are separated, I asked to make two cards – one for mom and one for dad.

At the end of the day, the children were kind to one another as they exchanged their cards.  Each year it is a pleasure for me to watch them open one another’s cards and read the little messages inside. The children never forget me and I always have my own cards to read and chocolate hearts to enjoy.

Valentine’s Day is a sweet time of year. Not only because chocolates are exchanged; but also because the sentiment behind the giving is one of caring.

Did you receive something sweet for Valentine’s Day?

  1. A lovely warm post Colline, I agree with one others comments, your children do have a lot of love in them, I suspect, skillfully taught through a very loving Teacher.
