You Can Always Gain by Giving Love

What does the word love mean to you?


Charlie: The word love means to be charming, and show that you care for someone. I like to show people how much I love them by helping them when they need it. I like to hug my friends. My mom gives me the best hugs and I love them. I like to leave my parents little notes to let them know how much I love them too!


Harrison: The word love means that no matter what I do, my parents will always be there for me. To me, it’s a happy and warm feeling. 



Do you send Valentines to friends or family in grade five? 


Charlie: Of course, because it doesn’t matter how old you are – it’s always good to let people know you care about them. I like giving Valentines to my class and I especially love reading the messages I get from my friends. 


Harrison – Yes I will!  I love my friends and I like sending them notes reminding them about fun things we did together. 



What do you think about public displays of affection (when people kiss, hug, hold hands in public)?


Charlie: It’s weird and I don’t feel comfortable. My mom and dad do it and it’s kinda gross!


Harrison: Is it really necessary? In public? The only thing I don’t mind is when people hug. Hugging is good. I like when I can feel a hug in my heart. 



What do you do to celebrate Family Day?


Charlie: We usually go for a big hike, and have a big meal. Last year we spent Family Day at Blue Mountain with my cousins!  Whatever we do, it’s always fun!  


Harrison: I really want to go winter camping this year for family day!  We usually go skiing, hiking, tobogganing and then watch movies and play board games. Who knows what we will be allowed to do this year?
