Valentine Fun

Roses are pink, Your feet really stink by Diane DeGroat

The story is about Gilbert who needs to write fifteen friendly valentines to his classmates. But when he sits down to do it, writing a nice one to a boy who tweaked his nose and a girl who made fun of his glasses was harder than he thought. Instead he writes two not-so-nice valentines and signs some else’s name. After sharing the valentines, feelings are hurt. But with an honest apology the children learned there can be a change of heart on Valentine’s Day.

Following the story the second graders made paper plate yarn hearts to share with their family.
