We were in full-on party mode today, but I did *sneak* in some "real work," like the writing activity on back of a craft.
Yesterday, we used Writer's Workshop time to work on a special friendship book. The students wrote about things that friends always do and things that friends never do. (Some of them were a little confused... "Why should I write about bad things, Mrs. Davis!??) Their responses were so precious, and some were truly touching.
A friend always... helps me dance and sing.
A friend never... kicks me or hurts me.
A friend always... fills your bucket like saying nice, good things.
(We do "Bucket Fillers" at my school.)
A friend never... hits, and never "bes" mean.
A friend always... cheers for me.
A friend never... hits me.
A friend always... helps me.
A friend never... makes me sad.
A friend always... helps me if I don't know how to write.
The writing prompt pages are free on my TPT store, as well as the book cover!
Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's evening with those you love!
