Well there is no huge Hooplah here celebrating Valentine's Day. Our junior high students sell lollipops, so that is about as crazy as it gets! Well us teachers decided that our 1st and 2nd graders would have friendship ice skating to celebrate the day together. It was great! We had the 2nd graders make cards for the 1st graders, and we delivered them. Then at ice skating we gave each child a number. Then we called all 80 kids over to us on the ice, and told them random numbers they had to make from the numbers they were given. Example, 13 (5+5+3). Once they made their number they went around the ice together in that group. We had an 1.5hrs planned for it, but by the time we had all the laces tied and everyone including the teachers on the ice, there was only 40 minutes to skate. The kids had a fun time, and it was nice to see them mingling with each other! Hope your Valentine's Day was great!
