Updating files lately, I came across something I’d kept from when I taught 2nd grade. They were all great, but I thought I’d share a few. It was Valentine’s Day, 2002. The journal topic was “Love is when…”.
(f) True love is when you give someone a ring and marry each other.
(m) Love is when you know someone and you want to talk with them all you can.
(f) Love is when you share your toys. Love is when you like someone inside or outside. Love is when you share your feelings.
(m) Love is when my mom broke her toe and she could hardly move. My dad took care of her and helped her.
(f) Love is when a boy takes a girl’s breath away. Love is when a girl takes away a boy’s breath!!!!!
(m) My mom loves me. She scratches my back.
(f) I know my dad loves me because he stopped smoking when I was born.
(m) Love is when a person loves another person, like when my mom feeds me.
(f) Love is when the moon never stops spinning around the earth. That’s because they were made for each other. Love is when a person’s name is in your heart. That is love.
(m) Love is romantic….or yuck. Love. Yuck. Gross. I think I’m going to throw up.
