Song and Poems to Share: 

For Valentine’s Day

Flowers are sweet.
That is true. (nod head)
But for my Valentine, (point at self)
I’ll choose you! (point at someone else)
And you and you and you! (point at everyone!)

The Queen of Hearts 

The Queen of Hearts
She made some tarts,
All on a summer’s day.
The Knave of Hearts,
He stole the tarts,
And took them clean away.
The King of Hearts,
Called for the tarts,
And told the Knave no more.
The Knave of Hearts,
Brought back the tarts,
And vowed he’s steal no more.

My Valentine

My Valentine is red. (nod head)
My Valentine is blue. (point to self)
We’ll cut and cut (pretend to cut)
And glue and glue (pretend to glue)
Then send it home to you (point at children one by one)
and you and you.
