Both Abigail and Suzanna signed up for this mini-lesson led by Daddy, and they were model students! Suzanna was among the first to enter the lab today, so I enlisted her help in passing out the instruction sheets from last time to the right children. She finished her newsletter before Abigail did, so I had Suzanna help me with one final item: taping Valentine's Day marshmallow treats (Little Debbie's version of Rice Krispies Treats, only red) to each finished newsletter so that the children would have a ready-made gift to give to whatever loved one was their intended recipient. Susan bought the treats for me, and I asked her to get enough so that each child could have a treat of his or her own, too--that was their lovely parting gift just for playing.
Would you like to make your own Valentine's Day newsletter, Faithful Reader? Go here to do the Valentine's Day WebQuest, to create your newsletter, and to play the online games. You'll have to buy your own sweet treat, though, to accompany the newsletter. And you'd better get crackin'--Valentine's Day is just a few hours away!
P.S. Although I haven't seen Abigail and Suzanna's newsletters, I happen to know that they wrote theirs to Susan, so she'll be getting two marshmallow treats with her newsletters in the morning. Let's see if she tears up while reading!
