Notes about Valentine's Day in France:
1) It's only meant for couples; therefore, it's not celebrated in elementary schools like it is in the USA. No Valentine's Day decorated boxes for cards and candy.
2) The Valentine's Candy hearts don't exist. I should've asked someone to ship them over for class.
3) French people don't use XOXOXO to express kisses and hugs. Who would've known?

Tomorrow, I will make my students create "friendly" Valentine's cards. I think it will work with the 6th graders, but I doubt it will work with any grade that's older. The risk of vulgarity is too strong.
