Yup, you guessed it. There was no candy going on in my room on Valentine's Day and the kids never even made a comment. They loved all the games and activities and the special folder I let them color in. It was precious to watch them give out their cards. The parents gave out tons of pencils and heart erasers but resisted the candy. At the end of the day two fifth graders came in with a pile of handmade valentines created by the kinder mentors. My kids were in awe of this. I swear I read each one to the class and had to resist choking over the things that their mentors wrote. I got messages like, " I knew you were the perfect little buddy for me when Mrs. Kramer introduced us...,"Be my valentine because you are so cute and smart..." " I will always be your friend,Love from your Mentor Alex..." It was so adorable and touching. When did 5th grade boys become such mush balls? I L*O*V*E*D it!
Check out the little mailboxes I made for my grade level. They loved them and it was so much fun to make these. I filled them with valentine m&m's and little note cards I made with their names. I love these guys. I love this holiday. Don't you?
