¡Feliz día de San Valentín! Or as we say in English “that holiday in February that mostly only Americans pay any attention to.”
Not too much to report, but I did have to share this…was doing a little fun poem-creating with my 5th graders using the basic “roses are red, violets are blue” format, but letting them have a little of their own creative license…
The finished product, an original masterpiece from 5th level B in Albelda:
“Hearts are red
The sky is blue
Bananas are fantastic
And so are you.”
Pretty much Lord Byron, I know. I was asking them to brainstorm adjectives that “are nice to call people we like” and then objects that can also be described by that same word to fit in the poem. I just about lost it at the enthusiastically suggested “BANANAS ARE FANTASTIC!” (and perfectly correct, but hilarious all the same). Maybe I just find this hysterical and random because I’m their teacher, but perhaps you might get half a chuckle out of it too.
Happy heart day everyone! ¡Besos y abrazos a todos!
