Valentines Day more than candy and cards.

Today my aid read the book "Saint Valentine" to my students. I find that one of the best ways of teaching students about interdisciplinary topics is to read them a story. Now my students know that Valentine's Day isn't just about candy- but that it started with a saint that cared deeply for others- and in his name we show our appreciation to those we love on the day of his execution.

And by the way- the illustrations also are a great lead into a lesson about mosaics!
