Saturday Sayings and Valentine Wrapped up!

Hello Saturday!!  Valentine week is always hard to deal with. I guess it's that way because the kids are given tons of candy and it's too cold (wet in my region) to go out and run, run, run. On top of the holiday fun, I received a new student. It's fine that he joined us, but that was just another factor to send my kiddos over the edge.  None the less, we made it!  We don't have school on Monday! I will need an extra day to recover.

I am joining Forever In First for Saturday Sayings. Each Saturday, a few bloggers tell their favorite quotes. I always enjoy it!
Several years ago, I worked with a precious lady. She would always say, "Always treat each child the way you would want your child to be treated." When she told me this, I didn't have my own children. It sounded correct but I really didn't understand. But now that I have my own boys, those words hit home each and every day. It somehow has been engraved into my mind. You know those occasional  moments when a child has said or done something that makes you walk out of the room for a deep breath? Yep, you know.. During those times, I can always remember her soft voice reminding me to treat that child as my own.  Here's a pic I found on pinterest that sort of goes along with my quote.
Our homeroom mom made our valentine party healthy. We had string cheese, pretzels, apples, and fruit dip. Of course, she had to add a cupcake. What's a party without cupcakes??
We also copied a few ideas from pinterest. Here's our version.
She forgot to write I Love You. Oops..

Fun, Fun, Fun

At the end of the day, the Good Samaritan gave every lady at our school a dozen of roses. PRECIOUS!!!


  1. That's wise advice. Thank you for reminding us and giving us perspective. So glad you joined up today.

  3. I'm now thinking, treat that child as if he/she were your own grandchild--haha. Thanks for the reminder.

  4. I started teaching after my daughter was in schools, and that was something I told myself - treat the kiddos in my room the way I'd want the kiddo from my home treated. Sometimes it's difficult, but it's worth it when you go home and think about your day. Sara
