We had a great time on Valentine’s Day. During reading, we discussed character traits (negative and positive ones) and how we can also possess those same traits. Today was all about lifting our classmates up with writing a positive character trait on one another’s paper hearts. We scooted around the room (to great music of course) and encouraged one another.
At the end of the day, our fifth graders joined one another in the hallway for their favorite drink, a cookie provided by teachers, and got to enjoy reading Valentine’s Day cards from one another. What a memorable day!
