A Valentine's 
Day Class Party
Friday, February 12th at 12 noon Central Time
Enjoy Valentine's Day stories and poems, play fun games,
 and make and share your own Valentine with the LIVE class!

A project pack will be sent out a couple of weeks before class so that you can choose your own projects to do and share with the class. We will have a lot of fun celebrating a holiday together that is all about friendship and caring for one another. The only thing you will have to do yourself is make your own cookies or treats to eat while we have our class party that day!!
We will play games and read stories together and have all kinds of Valentine's Day fun with other friends who homeschool just like you! How fun is that?!! All ages who are interested are invited to join in on the fun (even moms and dads). Join me for the fun and let's see what we can learn that day about the meaning of friendship and caring.
