Last night I went to a Sox game with one of my best friends, Holly, her husband, Mike, and the boyfriend. We had a great time and the Sox won...and...there was a great fireworks show last night, too!
Anyways, today's prompt is about our favorite holidays to spend with kids and mine is most definitely Valentine's Day! Especially in middle school, it was always pretty awesome because the kids went crazy, bringing in tons of gifts for their boyfriends/girlfriends, gifts like these:
But another reason why I love Valentine's Day is because I always do Warm Fuzzies. I already wrote about them in a post before, so check that out - it's a tutorial for making them. They're just these little yarn necklaces that you use to give appreciations to everyone. And then, when it's all said and done, there's hundreds of little yarn pieces all over the floor. (I always make the kids pick them up before they go though!)
I'm pretty sure I've done them every year over the last 11, and here's a few years worth of kiddos having fun on Valentine's Day:
|Two girls from my third year - now in college!|
|Fourth Year Kiddos|
|Last year - My first with kinders!|
Well, there's a little happiness for this Saturday morning. What's your favorite holiday to celebrate with your students?
