Valentine’s Day is approaching. At Heartworks we celebrate by sharing Valentine’s Day cards with all the children in the class. For the younger children, please only indicate who the valentine is from, that way the children will be able to pass the cards out independently. When they do this by themselves, they will be able to experience the sense of gratification that comes with giving a gift to someone. For the Pre-kindergarten children who can decipher their classmates’ names, they may want to address the valentine to each of the children. This is a fun activity to work on with your child. Please refrain from sending in candy along with the valentines, as most candy is produced in a factory that also processes nuts.
