Feelin' the Love & a Freebie

What a great day to debut the new blog... Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!  If Valentine's Day in your classroom is anything like mine, you are officially EX-HAUS-TED but full of the lovin' only Kinders can provide.  You probably also have chocolate smears on your pants, pixie stick dust under your fingernails, and red paint in your hair.  Oh, how I love Kindergarten!

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!
