I know this is a little late to a be Valentine's post, but I have spent this weekend being sick....so here we go:
My Valentine's Day begin with a sweet friend at work bringing me and my TA breakfast! What a tasty way to start the day!!
My school does this every year - Bilo offers heart shaped cakes and those big cookies for $6.50. The school gets to keep $1.50 of each cake/cookie purchased and the kids get to decorate their own! Very neat!
Most kids wrote their names or initials and then they all got to add red, pink, and white sprinkles. Fun!
The best part about this year, a grandparent came into my classroom the morning that the money for cakes was due and asked how many students had not paid. The answer was 14. (You can do the math!) She pulled out her checkbook and wrote a check for the remainder of the kids to get to decorate a cake! :) What a kind thing to do. She said someone had done it in her grandson's class the previous year and she wanted to pay it forward. They had a great time! (And for our writing activity that day, those 14 students made Thank You cards for "Nana!")
What kinds of fun things does your school do?
