Last week I had the opportunity to teach an art lesson to a first grade
class in Lake City, Florida. With Valentines Day coming up, I chose to do
"heart collages" based in part on Jim Dine's heart series. For those who
are interested, the lesson is described at:

Following the "art" part of the lesson, the classroom teacher had the
children write their thoughts on "love" using "Love is. . ." as a stimulus.
Thought you might enjoy some of their responses:

Love is when you marry. - Bobby

Love is a house. - Talia

Love is like a bright pink rose. - Brianna

Love is a thing you can't break into pieces. - Christal

Love is a flower to give to you. - Lacie

Love is an angel. - Sara

Love is a painting of life. - Chrystal

Love is like a beautiful painting with a fancy frame. - Erica

(and my favorite)

Love is a good thing. - Quartrez

Enjoy.

Craig
