    valentine's day

    I second the idea about if they bring valentines for one they bring them for all. I have even gone as far as to count them before letting them distribute their cards. There's a book called "Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink" (I think that's the title) about a child who gives a rather nasty valentine to a couple of kids in his class and the repercussions of that move. I'll look it up for sure if you think your group could use it. It brings home how people feel about being excluded or given not very nice valentines.

    We make the week of valentine's a time to write letters to each other. Since I teach first grade we set up a cute little post office and teach how to write a simple letter, address an envelope and send it through the "mail" to your friend. Even older kids could enjoy that.
