Something to Think About

WHAT IS LOVE?

 

When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.  You know that your name is safe in their mouth.”  Billy – age 4

 
When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little starscome out of you.” Karen – age 7
 
“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.”  Terri – age 4
 
“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.” Chris – age 7
 
“You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it.  But if you mean it, you should say it a lot.  People forget.” Jessica – age 8

Writing Skill:

* Work on the formation of upper and lower case letters

*Work on sounding out and writing the letter that matches the sound to make words

* Work on leaving finger space between to words
