If you haven't read the story Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch, it's a really sweet one. It shows how much just those little words can really brighten someone's day. By the way Story Online has it recorded by Hector Elizondo if you don't have the book and want to share it with your munchkins:
So we decided we'd make some cards for our support staff at our school-the cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, adminstrators. One the front they painted "Somebody Loves You" and on the inside we tried our hand at Valentine's poems. We read "Roses are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink" so many of the messages had to do with how good people smelled! I love their use of similes, that was something I introduced a few weeks ago.
To those of you who read this blog, leave comments or e-mail me with them-lots of love going out to you guys! You are as sparkly as the moon and pretty as flowers as well! :)
