Valentine's Day offered an authentic and exciting opportunity to write notes to family, classmates, and teachers. It inspired the children to creatively create cards and practise writing some or all of their names. While delivering their valentines we discussed how they prepared at home. Some of the comments included: "Writing my name was really hard work!" "It only took two days to write my cards!!" "Mom and I made my valentines." "It was such hard work!!" Thank you families for scheduling time to help your children write on their cards. The effort was impressive!!
