Happy Valentine’s Day! 

I know I say this about every holiday, but I LOVE Valentine’s Day. It’s a day to just show love. It’s a day where our students make boxes and bags to pass love notes and share treats and it’s a peaceful, happy few minutes in a classroom. At least until the next fight at recess, right? It’s also a day when our students can surprise us with a little love, too. I had a really tough student about 5 years ago show up on Valentine’s Day with a huge fake rose made out of metal for me. It’s still on my desk and brings a smile to my face! 

We are also still in the middle of flu season. Rotovirus, colds and whopping cough are hanging around, too. Try not to think about the germs getting passed while your class hands out Valentines! 

I don’t know about you, but I’m always trying to find Valentine gifts to give my students that are NOT candy (they have enough!) and won’t take up too much of my extremely large teacher salary. Since I’m dodging germs left and right, I decided on Kleenex pocket tissue packs! I found these really cute packs at my Walmart store:

And attached a valentine to hand to my class. 

If you’re interested in sharing the germ-free love with your class this season, I’ve attached 2 different Valentines for you to use! One for tissues, one for something else like hand sanitizer or soap. Feel free to download and use with your valentines! 

No love for germs!
