Awesome Classroom Assignment for Valentine’s Day

One of the mottos at Dex’s school is to teach the whole child. I love how sometimes that means emotional growth, not just academics.

For Valentine’s Day, they were asked to write a personal note to every single other classmate. Not just “Happy V-day, Love – Me.”

Dex decided to give them a wrapped box of candy too, and most importantly, Dex had to really think about what he was saying to each child.

My favorite note is to Milo:

“You are always getting your work done while blowing stuff up!”

    If only there had been more Milos throughout my education it might not have been so tedious for me!

    This is really cool. And I like how each kid gets one with a v personalized message. Makes everyone feel good and no one feel under-valentinized.

    This is awesome. So much better than the standard box of nerds with the punched out generic card.

    I think I’m going to steal this idea and make my son do this next year.

    In a world where everything is becoming de-personalized and cookie cutter this adds real value to the giver and receiver.

    Thanks y’all! OMSH, trust me – Milo is such a hilarious kid! Love him so much!

    This is very sweet. My kid also made a special card in school for the Valentines Day. I was so touched.
