I found the cutest little cards at my parents' house that I gave the kids with their candy! I thought the little mouse looked like our guinea pig, Cocoa so, I couldn't resist.
Then during writing time, the students wrote narratives with candy hearts. Do you remember doing this as a kid? I sure do! The shapes are still the same but some of the messages are crazy! For example, I surely did not know what LMOL meant. (According to Google, Laughing Madly Out Loud)
The kids really enjoyed doing this and since we only have a two day week (Thanks to Mardi Gras) it was a good writing activity that they could finish quickly!
I totally love holidays at school, especially if my kids would act like this every holiday-- I guess I shouldn't jinx myself before they get back from art! (LMOL)
Hope you have a LOVEly day,
