As you know, one of my favorite things is reading. I wanted to share some of my favorite books about love with you. Feel free to peruse them.
Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch.
I love the message this book shares. Expressing love and gratitude makes a huge difference.
A Book of Hugs
This book has adorable illustrations and explains different ways to hug. I can't wait to share it with my little man. This one went over a lot better with my second graders than A Book of Kisses. I like that one too, but it will make your kids silly.
Guess How Much I Love You
This book is a classic. It is perfect for illustrating similes You could even have the children write their own version for their parents or special valentines.
Bear Hugs: Romantically Ridiculous Animal Rhymes
I loved using the short poems in this to help with transitions, as a small reward, or even a short time filler. After reading it you could inspire the poets in your class to write a poem from a different animal's perspective.
Fun for First also came up with an excellent list which you can find here.
I love sharing books! And I really love Farley's Currently Parties. Check out what is new in my world.
My husband fell in love with Imagine Dragons and I quickly followed suit. Listening to them makes me happy.
We've been fighting the rain recently. Right now the sun is shining and I am almost convinced to go for a walk.
I want to send some "love notes" to people who have made an impact on my life. If you were to write a note, who would you write?
We moved this summer and I still don't feel like I have found a new friend. I have several new acquaintances but no one who really fits. Blech.
The price of stamps went up. I need to buy some more one cent stamps so I can send off my love notes. Snail mail is so much more fun than digital.
I HATE comment verification forms. Why do they have to make the letters all squiggly? I almost always mess up. I promise I am human. I can't leave a fun comment if your comment guardian rejects me so many times I give it. Trust me. It happens. At least once a week.
I also HATE people who smoke next to children. You are ruining their lungs and setting them on the path to developing a terrible habit. Enough said.
How are you preparing for Valentine's day? Who are you planning on showering with love?
