With Valentine's Day coming up, we've been working on spreading the love! This fabulous book, From Me to You, is all about noticing when your friends are feeling a little down and picking them back up again. The main character, Rat, has the "bathrobe blues" until one of his friends sends him an anonymous letter letting him know that he is special and loved! Rat's whole outlook on life turns right around and he ends up sending an anonymous letter to Bat to cheer him up.
Now, we don't have the "bathrobe blues," but it's always nice to get reminders of how special we are! So, we each wrote a secret letter to another classmate. We practiced writing two inside compliments and one outside compliment. That means two compliments about a person's character and one about something fun.
It was especially fun to see our friends faces when they read their letters and then later reveal who their secret pen pal actually was! We're feeling the Valentine's Day spirit!
