Valentine's Day: You deserve some love

Shhh...don't tell anyone, but I used to be anti-Valentine's Day.  However, with little O around and her love of all things holiday, I have slooooowly embraced this fictitious-Hallmarked-induced-I-don't-need-a-day-to-show-my-love-for-others holiday.  See, I'm taking baby steps.

As fellow educators, I think the more we can show our love and support for each other, the better.  I'm blushing.  I bought you a present.  I hope you like calendars.

Choice number one.....


Choice number two......

Which will you choose?  Click on your favorite, follow the easy directions and turn on your printer.  I would tell you they are free, but that would be tacky to give you a present and tell you the price.

Enjoy - you deserve it!

Happy fictitious-Hallmarked-induced-I-don't-need-a-day-to-show-my-love-for-others-Valentine's Day,

Jen

  1. Yes, very induced by Hallmark! Look at it like we are reminded of the people that make life more fun, more enjoyable and fill us with a little something. It's our yearly reminder for those that take some of the people in our lives for granted. :)

  2. A - I like your outlook on VDay. It is a good day to remember those you love and show gratitude. Tomorrow's post is on Dedications. Maybe if more people dedicated their day, we wouldn't have to rush to do so on Vday. At any rate, Happy Valentine's Day to you! Thank you fo posting your comments.

  5. I think that a Valentine's Calendar for a blog devoted to teaching teachers is quite a fitting post on Valentine's Day. I think that this post could have been made a teachable moment...granted, I could have done the research myself, but I didn't. What if you posted something about the history of Valentine's Day? That way, in case I decided the morning of this momentous Hallmark holiday to look at Upcycled Education before going to school, I could engage my kids with a little fun history about how Valentine's Day came into existence. Just a thought...next up...St. Patty's, April Fools, Cinco de Mayo...I should probably do some research too, though.

  6. Jenna - Super idea. Make holidays more than Hallmark Card occasions and get to the root of why they are celebrated and cherished. Talk about lessons on diversity.....
