Simple Sunday – Restricted Area with Love (and a Parasitic Infection)

To build up to Valentine’s Day this year, I posted a paper heart a day (well, almost every day) on the boys’ bedroom door, each with a reason why I loved them written on it.  Their interest level in what I thought was a cute idea was far from high.  Perhaps that is why I missed a day or two..

Restricted Hearts

I did a similar thing in my classroom, hearts with reasons I loved being their teacher, with much greater results.  Alas, I did not remember to take a picture so you will just have to imagine it.

And on an unrelated topic, I found this at the end of our hallway yesterday. 

paper airplane

It made me laugh and surprised me that two boys who do not like, and are not very good at, spelling were attentive to it when naming their airplane.  I am not sure that Parasite Infection Airlines is the best name, however, if they want to be competitive in the airline industry.

Just a thought.

      I thought it was a great idea! The boys, not so much. I will continue to do it in my classroom as my students really enjoyed seeing a new heart show up each day.
