Poetry Friday: Valentine, Be My Friend


It's Poetry Friday!  It seemed only right to dedicate today's post to Valentine's Day.  It is February 14th, after all, which makes today the perfect day for poetry.  Stop by TeacherDance where Linda Baie is hosting today's event.  

Yesterday our class celebrated Valentine's Day.  I had to smile at my students as they were so excited to share Valentines with their friends.  Ah, to be six.  


Valentine, Be My Friend

  8. "Candy love" -- that's what it's all about for kids, isn't it?!?!
