Valentine's Day as a teacher can be painful.
It is difficult with kiddies who don't like each other. In competition, they send a few valentine's to some, not others, and then count them.
We eschewed it for Random Acts of Kindess week.
In other years, we taped students singing, reciting their own poems and my JKs event record love message for mommy and daddy. I made a copy of each cassette tape for each family. I still have mine somewhere. Those were the good years!
