Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Its been a pretty good day, beautiful and warm weather for a change! (good thing cause my coat is still looking sad...)
I taught the little kids today and explained that Valentine's Day in America is of course for couples but just as importantly for friends and family. We made the little Valentines cards that my mom sent, made some others with the little poem on them:
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And so are you!**
and then tried some of the heart candy that mom had sent as well. The kids had a good time and loved making cards for their boyfriends and girlfriends (at 5 years old people! it starts young!). It was fun sharing something different about the same holiday and the kids were so cute. I had one little kindergartener tell me that after mommies and daddies get married they have babies, buuuut sometimes they can have babies before they get married! The shock!
Oh and good news! I got my first grade of the year, on the big presentation I gave in November! I'm pretty happy with my 15/20, its a good grade, I'd say about a B or B+ on the American scale and its good as the class average was 16.
**I couldn't help thinking in my head:
But the roses are wilted
The violets are dead
The sugar is lumpy
And so is your head!
Anyone remember that one??? ;)
